Tony’s Blair’s uneveness and spasmodic nature of constitutional reform left it incomplete. Gordon Brown has stated his intention to carry on with the reforms but continues, as Blair did, to assiduously avoid answering the West Lothian question. The Conservatives seem to be toying with the idea of an English Grand Committee as an answer and Iain Dale is keen for it to be considered. However, Jack Straw argues that it is unworkable in practical terms. Straw points out similar notions have been floated twice before, Gladstone tried to include it in the Irish Home Rule proposals before concluding it couldn’t work and Wilson tried to exclude Ulster MP’s from some votes after parliamentary defeats in the 1960’s (which the Tories then opposed). However, while the Conservatives may not have found the answer at least they are not ignoring the question.
