Miliband calls for UK Constitutional Convention – and the whole country will have a say, not just politicians
Poll Support For Redskins Name Across The Board: Majority of Republicans, Dems, Women, Men, Don’t Want Name Changed
Catalan MPs vote to hold independence referendum - The Scotsman:
Cameron must ignore Miliband's attempts to delay and move to deliver for Scotland quickly, and then for England in the GE2015 manifesto.
NO victory is welcomed by Australia's conservative PM Tony Abbott, a staunch unionist & royalist who was born in London to English parents.
Parasites suck the life out of their host -I'd rather have a tapeworm than a Tory govt. At least we'd have an NHS to deal with it.
fears the Scots may regret their vote, it's only been 24 hours but the parties are already distancing themselves from the Vow
After 27 hour sleepless broadcast marathon having Jamesons and Montecristo on my terrace. Beautiful balmy night. Labour conference tomorrow
Typical that Cameron confronted with constitutional issue after plays divisive narrow party political game & fails to unify nation
“: you must be lost. There aren't any UKIP MPs in the East of England.” MEPs
Just about another week to the Conservative Party conference
. and yet you're a self proclaimed socialist who by definition wants more of thieving government. Couldn't make it up.
Homeless, alone & partially sighted : woman evicted after 30 yrs over a £200 bedroom tax bill < what have we become?
In the East with other half and 2 other couples for the weekend. Close to territory apparently.
Govt doing great job pretending to care while stealing everything we own from under us. We're too busy fighting each other to notice.
Meltdown after Miliband disaster < What another one!?
Cracking Lib Dem Quiz in tonight - I managed to smash the bottle of whiskey prize - cracking in more ways than one
I think the scenes this evening have definitely demonstrated how wrong Lib Dem Gavin Hamilton is in terms of his analysis of nationalism.
Amazing that Conservative Pty now the most pro-devo of established parties in UK politics. Labour is forming a circular firing squad.
can you please tell me the last time you had the Conservative and unionist leader on your show.
Tonight's Chuka Umunna car crash interview will likely be replayed over and over if he challenges for the Labour Leadership.
Dominic Grieve QC MP speaks candidly regarding proposals. It's self interest of the highest possible order.
Media seem to have interviewed every lib dem bar Clegg today. Where is he?!
So Labour refuse to answer the West Lothian question. The people of Eng are entitled to have English MPs decided Eng laws only.
The Labour party is going the way of the Liberals.
In Chukka Umunna's defense I can't name three labour MSPs either. But I'm not their colleague
Labour proposed & supported major constitutional change last week. Now the is over they're happy to break their promises.
Great interview by on with Shadow Business Secretary. Couldn't name Shadow Labour Government of Scotland. Blush.
I hope resources are going to be put back to Local Councils if there is to be devolution - because Local Govt has suffered huge cuts.
Labour have got themselves into a terrible mess over Scottish MPs - shambles.
So won't offer / some form of devolution 4 England answering ! What's his problem with democracy
They could basically subvert any Government education policy by legislating to prevent it. It would be interesting I guess...
Under English votes idea - if the Tories had a majority in England they could pass education laws even in Labour were in Government.
Chukka: Basically we don't want to lose our 67 MPs from Wales and Scotland
Where is Nick Clegg, the minister for constitutional reform? This should be his moment.
Congrats to , newly minted lib dem PPC for Watford
Listening to Tam Dalyell on shows how hollowed out the once principled Labour Party now is. Many Labour MPs should be ashamed.
Chukka Umuna excellent on Newsnight now on constitutional change - 1,000 year old system being taken apart by Tories in Coalition government
With 533 English MPs&59 Scots the idea that England is disenfranchised is laughable, it's as though Cameron learnt nothing fm
Watford select as parliamentary candidate for 2015 She'll be an outstanding MP for Watford
Tam Dalyell on Cameron's promise to devolve more power to UK regions and cities: "I don’t think the timetable is at all real."
Don't think you can construct an English Parliament merely by excluding Welsh/Scottish MPs because ppl would vote diff in a separateElection
Conservatives will offer English only mps voting on English matters and a EU referendum Labour will offer none of this and more Government
Tory / Lib Dem plans to cut legal aid in doubt after High Court ruling - It's not plain sailing for failing Grayling!
My interview in tomorrow's . - 'NHS is Labour's priority in election fight, says Ed Balls'
"Ed Miliband & I will do what it takes to make sure NHS is safe": my interview with in
The next few days will highlight the MPs who have the balls to put nation before party, and those interested in maintaining a fiefdom.
Ed's going to try and frame it as some evil Tory plot to have the MPs England vote for, wait for it... vote on English laws.
It's a good rule of thumb, if Labour oppose it for Westminster it's a good thing for Britain.
First Labour reneged on Scottish devolution promise. Now they refuse English votes for England. When will they stop acting in self-interest?
Balls says Labour will fight the Election on NHS and living standards. And he still insists he was right to call for Plan B in 2010
"Ed Miliband & I will do what it takes to make sure NHS is safe": interview with in
The idea that MPs will ever willingly pass meaningful powers to the regions, or the cities, is utterly farcical.
If big cities ®ions control domestic issues then there'll be less for MPs & peers to do so wd we need as many & how much wd we pay them?
I agree with Miliband on this. It's time for a constitutional convention
Ed Miliband is a major pain you all know exactly where. That is all.
Interview in tomorrow's with > NHS is Labour's priority in election fight, says Ed Balls
Enjoyable Aylesbury Conservative Patrons event with good to catch up with and also
A labour Gov MIGHT want to whip the 41 Scottish MPs to support something popular in England. This debate is more nuanced than people think!
Miliband blocks ‘English votes’ plan put forward by Cameron
Ed’s “Dynamic Settlement” Fails to Inspire Dynamic Response ..
. UKIP can't give you a referendum, they have no MPs. You need to vote Conservative for that.
Lib dems I follow all, every last one, failing to understand that the violence in Glasgow is the nationalism they tar Yes voters with.
If we actually completely get rid of Scottish MPs from Westminster, isn't that de facto separation?
Patrick O'Flynn MEP @oflynndirector Director of Communications. London, UK
I really hope Boris Johnson doesn't become Tory Leader. No way in hell he could possibly understand anyone outside the M25.
“: Why the near 'yes' vote means Westminster MPs should take back power, not give it away: ” <SO THIS!!
Miliband won't trust UK people re EU Ref 2017 & won't trust the English to run our own affairs. Putting his Party before country again.
A tartan Tory indeed. What an asshole >> Goodbye Alex Salmond via
If those 41 Scottish Labour MPs were replaced with 41 English Labour MPs, 99% of time they'd vote in exactly same way because of Whipping!
Miliband is eager to support and fast track devo max for Scotland. However he's reluctant to support one for England. I wonder why.......
So now Labour seem to be against more power for English Communities, unbelievable........

Ed Miliband may have just aided the Conservatives with northern votes Rejecting settling West Lothian Question huge error Primrose Hill Wing
High Court mauls Chris Grayling's "illegal" legal aid plans - Government should abandon them now
As MPs usually vote according to the Whips, rather than representing constituents, the West Lothian issue is more conceptual than practical
has no right to receive so much airtime when a) has 0 MPs, and b) his party has a proven track-record of hatemongering.
Ed Miliband playing for time. Keen on devo max for Scotland but unwilling to support English votes for English laws. The voters will notice.
Cameron promises 'home rule' for England as Scotland says No to independence
Emily Thornberry MP tells Labour wants 18-month constitutional conventon, status quo won't do -
Scottish referendum results: Cross-party consensus collapses amid Tory-Labour spat on the 'English question'
Tory Britain - CUTS CUTS take back our services into control of people not stripped so our safety is at risk
Labour just sent an email about bedroom tax and defeating the tories. Absolutely trying to usher politics away from reform. Shameful.
I reminder of just how utterly stupid Labour's housing policies are...
English regional assemblies: 1 for every 2 or 3 counties, I think, depending on population. 1 member per 50,000 electorate, replacing MPs.

Today lost the 2015 election and won't help either. Looking forward to conference
Well I think Lib Dems on here today have proved we aren't just electoral reform geeks - we're geeky about the whole constitution! :)
's Constitutional Convention sounds like a talking shop to delay any reform & keep its Scots MPs voting on England-only issues

The General Election may now be fought on constitutional issues as well as the economy. De-centralisation is not just a Scottish matter
My last comment is 'thank you Scotland'. The UK is a better more democratic place for your intervention. But now we need a Labour Govt.
about 20% of Lib Dem MPs are Scottish how much influence do you think that had on English votes on English matters in this gov!
If ur PM without majority in England & lose vote on English proposal u may need to win confidence vote of all UK MPs to survive 3/4
I don't think England should have dual purpose MPs, Scotland doesn't. Real English devolution means out of Westminster.
