That Pesky 'West Lothian Question'......

From Politics Home we learn that a Commission on whether members of devolved parliaments should be able to vote on matters that only affect England has been launched. The Guardian has two articles here and here, the latter stating in its headline that the West Lothian inquiry risks creating second-class MPs. If only - they all seem rather 'third-rate' to me, but I digress.

Of course, if we embraced direct democracy there would be no first-rate, second-rate, or third-rate MPs; they would all be equal - and subservient to the people.

Simples really! Whats not to like?

Of course there are second-rate MPs....it just happens they represent English Constituencies when blocked from voting on Scottish matters that their Constituents are paying for.
