  • equal equality/ borders/

    The Scottish now have their own parliament and law, in which the English can not take part, yet the Scottish influence our parliament and law. So much for equal rights to the English, in that a Scottish vote is worth more than an English vote. The system shall be equal when the Scottish are not allowed in the English system.

  • UK not England

    Yes, Scotland has it's own parliament and no the English should not be allowed to vote in that parliament. And, while the West Lothian question is a perfectly valid point - one that was brought up by a Scottish MP 30 years ago and which practically every Scot agrees with - the point is that it does not relate to the English parliament.

    MPs are members of the UK parliament and represent constituencies from across the entire UK - Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as well as England. Perhaps if the English recognised this we wouldn't have needed devolution in the first place.
