If, as looks likely, President Tony is forced to resign over the next few days, is it right that England should exist as a colony of Scotland with an undemocratically elected Scottish Prime Minister, representing a Scottish constituency?

Personally, I have a huge problem with the whole West Lothian issue!

I don't know if Tony is Scottish or not but he did attend a Scottish fee-paying school - Fettes.

MR B has said along that Gordon Brown would never sit comfortably as Prime Minister and the reason being that he is Scottish and that Scotland has it's own parliament. Maybe GB could take over from Jack McConnell who is a bit of a patronising git! Should it really matter if GB is Scottish or Welsh though as long he gets the job done?

Also lined up in the frame is another scot John Reid, god forbid he becomes Prime Minister and if all else fails there is always John Prescott! :w00t:

What's the West Lothian issue, Groucho? Dare I admit it but that where my roots started, although I am glad to say that I succeeded in my bid for freedom!

Ah you were brought up in lovely Armadale weren't you? I think it's a lovely wee town...

Basically that Scottish MPs can vote at Westminster on purely English issues, whereas English MPs have no vote in the Scottish Parliament.

And am I getting this right that in the last election, if the Scottish votes were taken out of the equation, Blair wouldn't have got into office?

Are we allowed to be overtly racist generally here? Or is it purely to discuss Groucho's anti Scottish MP rant?

Labour have a parliamentary majority in England, although the Conservative had more votes.

The way the constituencies are carved up plays into Labours hands as they are weighted towards the big cities, whereas the Tories are strong out in the country.
