Podcast: On the importance of West Lothian…

Last week we caught up with top Tory blogger Iain Dale to ask him about his party’s raising of the West Lothian question (download from here). He notes that for all the recent furore around West Lothian question it was in the last Conservative manifesto. He argues that if the presentation has not been everything it should have been, the party is right to raise English unease at a perceived imbalance in the wider relationships of the UK. Indeed, he argues that the Conservatives are not the only ones who should be addressing this. Elsewhere, Tom Griffin agrees that this is an issue for the left as much as the right. Iain has since condensed his thoughts on this at the Guardian blog.
