The West Lothian Answer

I am Scottish and British.

I have great respect for those who want a totally Independent Scotland as it is a honourable position to hold. However, I do not agree with them and believe the Union is stronger economically and unique in its ability to allow expression of own country and pride in being British.

I am ashamed at the current inequality of the unbalanced Union. The current arrangement of Scottish MPs voting on matters that only concern England whilst excluding English MPs from voting on Scottish matters is wrong. Its not fair. It is not honourable.

The solution is to have 1 MP for each Scottish constituency representing their constituents in the Houses of Parliament and also representing them in Edinburgh when the Scottish Parliament sits. There must also be the same arrangement in England with English MPs forming an English Parliament.

Inconsistencies in Health, Education and Welfare must not be allowed to happen with no financial penalty.

The conflicts are being cleverly created but the Scottish people know it is an embarrassment to the country and must stop it before it causes uncontrollable resentment.
