Evel and ScotvScotl?

Admittedly ScotvScotl does not exactly roll off the tongue.

Having instituted a degree of self government to NI, Scotland and Wales the Westminster government has in effect set the hare running towards much fuller self determination. This has consequences for the remaining nation, England. So naturally there is a demand for something of the same.

Cameron and his cronies are not strategic thinkers. Say anything to get out of a jam is more their way. So Evel was born on the back of the chaos of the September Scottish referendum along with a mishmash of “promises” and a vow.

However if at Westminster English MPs have some sort of overlordship of English only laws, is there not a two way street? In the interest of justice for all the constituent parts of the UK, Scottish MPs should also have some privileges in deciding Scottish only laws.

Is this going to happen? Of course not because the Tories and Labour in Westminster have a colonial mindset when it comes to Scotland.
