Prime Minister Brown again showing contempt for the English

Here are two quotes from PM Brown

“We will do nothing to put the union at risk” - Gordon Brown

“We, gathered as the Scottish Constitutional Convention, do hereby acknowledge the sovereign right of the Scottish people to determine the form of Government best suited to their needs, and do hereby declare and pledge that in all our actions and deliberations their interests shall be paramount”. - Signed by Gordon Brown

As you can see they don’t go hand in hand, they clearly contradict each other.

To top it off, the following happened yesterday at Prime Ministers Question Time.

PM - “We will do nothing to put at risk the Union.”

Mr.Cameron - said: “Neither you nor I has the right to vote on hospitals, schools or housing in your constituency (Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath) or in other parts of Scotland.

“Yet you are able to vote on hospitals, on schools and housing in my constituency (Witney).

“We have two classes of MP already.

“The only effective way to solve this problem is to give MPs in English constituencies the decisive say on issues that only affect England.”

The Lib Dems leader - Sir Menzies Campbell told the Commons that “once devolution is properly established in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales” voting by the MPs from the nations was “an issue which simply cannot be dismissed.”

So clearly the Lib Dems and Labour, don’t simply get it. I wonder why. Mr.Brown clearly doesn’t get it that we already have two classes of MP and that this situation is going to get worse and worse with him at the helm.

I do hope all those in English constituencies will ask their local MP why it is they have done nada, absolutely nada to correct this, and are happy for England to be broken into regions as Mr.Brown wants.
