The West Lothian Question

September 19, 2014

I’m on the run out the door to a conference, but did I hear David Cameron correctly?  They’re hoping to settle the West Lothian question – to arrive at a constitutional settlement for England, Wales and Northern Ireland – to the same timetable as the devo max settlement with Scotland – by November?  By a Cabinet Committee?????

Without involving the Labour party?   Or any women??  Or any other ordinary people who don’t happen to have been appointed to the least diverse cabinet since the original Cabal???

What are they planning to do, issue a consultation document and give us three weeks to respond?  (I’m tempted to add, “and then ignore the responses”)

I’m busy reading up on Constitutional Law at present and it can be summed up as “tl:dr – it’s complicated”

I don’t have a great deal of confidence that it can be replaced by Christmas.
