Let’s get this straight right now – I do not support English Votes on English Laws. It’s an insult to our nation and a constitutional fudge that is doomed to failure.
It is, however, a recognition of more than a decade of institutional discrimination against England at the hands of the British establishment and the need for English affairs to be managed by English politicians elected by, and accountable to, the people of England. It will also inevitably lead to an English Parliament when the impracticality and inherent flaws in the system are shown up publicly.
To that end, I would encourage you to vote for the Power 2010 pledge on English Votes on English Laws. It is currently in 4th place but it’s still too close for comfort. Power 2010 and various other lobby groups associated with the Rowntree Trust will lobby every MP and PPC with the top 5 pledges as voted for by the public in the run-up to the election.
