Why English votes for English laws is a kneejerk absurdity - http://www.theguardian.com/comment...
not usually a fan of Vernon Bogdanor but his point at the role of the Ulster Unionists in denying Labour a majority in 1950, and 1964 is pertinent and true, He doesn't mention their provision of 10 votes in 1979 in bringing down the Callaghan Government. He also speaks about the indivisibility of fiscal policy and how taxation bleeds into education and health. He finishes by examining the fact that any solution to the West Lothian question is a non-Unionist, and at odds with the purported goals of the Try Party. Until the English are willing to participate in a federal system, and that would need to be at a regional level, which raises its own problems, EVEL is a nonsense, at Comment is free, The Guardian - Dave Levy
