St George's Day Resolution
Simon Heffer in the Telegraph (hat tip Blog of Kev)
Labour fears the English identity because it represents a challenge to the Scottish-dominated Government that has run this country since 1997. Since devolution, there is absolutely no justification for Scottish MPs to vote in divisions at Westminster on issues that, in their own country, are settled in the Scottish Parliament. Yet they do, and they do because, in an increasing number of instances, Labour would not win votes there on solely English matters without the entirely improper help of Scottish votes…I heartily concur old chap.
What we want, and deserve, is an English parliament at Westminster, where English matters are decided solely by representatives of the English people. And the jolly Feast of St George is the ideal day to make a resolution to ourselves, and to our rulers, that we shall not allow our swords to sleep in our hands until justice is done, and we are given equality with the Scots.
