    England, Scotland and sharing the money

    The Scottish people's unwillingness to give up the pound -- a key reason for the voting against independence -- suggested they wanted to stay in some kind of currency union. How this will work in practice given the SNP's drive for greater fiscal powers remains to be seen

    Devolution to England and devolution in England

    No amount of transferring budgets and powers to councils within England can make up for the lack of any devolution to England. When Scotland chooses her own income tax rate, so should England. It's time for justice for the English

    English votes for English needs – EVEN

    Let's have a mnemonic to get cross party support for a fair deal for England. Let's call it EVEN -- English votes for English needs. Surely, England should be entitled to that. This injustice has gone on too long

    Alex Salmond and the end of English democracy

    The SNP are, in many ways, Michael Foot’s old Labour Party of 1983. They're hard Left. One big difference is that the electoral predictions for 2015 mean they could wreak havoc at Westminster, putting Labour in power in return for Salmond's destructive conditions

    Scotland gets its powers, but what about England?

    Why should Scottish MPs come to Westminster to impose a higher rate of Income Tax on England than the Scottish Parliament places on Scotland? What about the rights of the English?

    LibDems determined as Labour to deny England justice

    With polls showing Labour faces wipe out on Scotland at the hands of the SNP we cannot ignore the demands for more Home Rule for England. But the LibDems seem as determined as Labour to deny England justice

    Ed Miliband: The man who hated England

    Labour destroyed the British economy and now recommends welfare dependency as the cure for its own misrule. But the real deal is shifty Ed Miliband's total contempt for the English by refusing England the same devolved rights as the Scots

    Getting real about English votes for English issues

    There are still plenty of misunderstandings about the English question after the Scottish referendum. It's not rocket science. Broadly, the English want the same devolved powers as the Scottish. Does Labour not get that?

    Don't lie back, but do think of England

    All the main Westminster parties seem to be moving towards some version or other of devo max, probably what Mr Salmond wanted all along. If this is true, it is time to think of England. For the present system is unacceptable

    Scottish nationalists should leave England alone

    Paradoxically, it's the Scottish nationalists who are interfering in English affairs. Perhaps as a sign of insecurity about what an independent Scotland would suffer, there's a pretty clear SNP agenda to break up England itself
