English are victims of Celtic Imperialism…

Put this in the class of seeing things from the other end. Derek Draper argues that the dragon the English need to slay is its own disenfranchisement. The existence of devolution elsewhere has vastly increased the amount of legislation which applies to England only, and yet Scottish, Welsh and NI MPs re-represent number that far outweigh Blair’s majority. He argues that if the next likely PM, Gordon Brown doesn’t take steps to address this, his Tory successor surely will:

They accept that devolution is here to stay, but can also see that the current system is unfair. William Hague has already gone on record to demand: “English MPs should have exclusive say over English laws,” and David Davis, the shadow home secretary, supports an English parliament. “The people of England deserve nothing less,” Davis insists, “than the same choice as the people of Wales and Scotland.”
