Just removing the Barnett formula doesn't solve the West Lothian question

Comment on opinion article by Alice Thomson - Daily Telegraph 21 Jun 06

Sorry Alice - just removing the Barnett formulae won't do it any more. There must be English votes on devolved matters and an English executive. This need not cost - just declare some departments English and have an English government from Westminster MPs. The final settlement must have symmetry and recognise the English nation, to the same degree as the Welsh, Northern Irish and Scottish nations.

If your interested in a range of opinions on this take a look at the Witanagemount Club and also the Campaign for an English Parliament.
