    The West Lothian question is raised again.

    The "spat" that became the "West Lothian question" about why, since the devolution of specific matters concerning Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Wales, had been transferred to these regions, matters that purely concern England can be voted upon by these regional MPs in Westminster while English MPs are unable to vote on these devolved matters in the other regions of Britain.

    Since further powers are about to be devolved to Scotland - at least - this question has become even more important.

    What do you folks think about this idea ?

    This is a problem that needs to be dealt with, and the best way to do that is by having strong Scottish, Irish, Welsh, AND English parliaments.
