Earlier this year a YouGov poll for the University of Cardiff, with a large sample size asked for views on the following proposition:
“Scottish MPs should be prevented from voting on laws that apply only to England.”
63 per cent agreed. 12 per cent disagreed. There were big majorities of Labour and Lib Dem voters who agreed.
But I’m afraid the Labour MP for Hammersmith Andrew Slaughter does not believe in allowing the English a fair democratic opportunity for deciding the laws we live under.
Mr Slaughter tweets:
Cameron using #indyref to impose UKIP values on London and continue moving money from poorer regions to Tory heartlands. Not fit to be UK PM

A serious misjudgement.
