After all N.Ireland and Wales have their own assemblies and devolved powers, and Scotland is well on its way to becoming either totally independent or devo max independent.

Have thought for ages that somehow the English seem to have missed out on all this decentralisation of power.

Wonder what, if anything, the main political parties will have to say about English self determination in their General Election manifestos?

YES, if we could throw out all the useless money grabbers and get in real people who have life experience of the real world and what it has to throw at us. How many of the current mp's would stay if their base salary was cut by 50%, still twice what a lot of us earn, and were not allowed to employ family members! NOT A F@@@@@G LOT, i expect.

I'm not a technical person so perhaps someone who is can explain this.

Why does my e-mail tell me that Allems has posted on this thread but according to the post above it shows a new poster calling themselves Purrrrfect.

If my memory serves me did the Scottish mp's vote for tuition fees in England and then vote for free Uni education north of the border.I stand to be corrected but the same happened with free prescriptions,and hospital parking.

All those were put on by Allems surely?

I see on the Brook Street posting re the picture the name has changed to Purrrfect.

@b.o.liking - pretty sure that the issue of education (tuition fees) and health (nhs) are devolved powers therefore the members of the scottish parliament would have decided on those charges - or lack of them.

However, I believe you are correct to say that all MPs elected to Westminster from all four countries of the UK have  the right to vote in Westminster on matters specifically English - such as university tuition fees and the NHS (along with any and everything else).

Fair?

Have a look at the info on here http://thecep.org.uk/
