A Voice for England

Since the results of the Scottish referendum, all parties have been under increasing pressure to take action on the issue of equal representation of the United Kingdom member nations.

During the last few days we have seen

Nigel Farage writing to all of Scotland’s MPs.

David Cameron calling for a vote on English rule.

And Ed Miliband flat out refusing to do anything.

UKIP is asking you to help get Ed and Labour’s MPs moving in the right and fair direction.

Please take a moment to read through this petition: A Voice for England.

It asks for:

  1. English only votes in Westminster. We’re asking Scottish MPs for their commitment to not vote on English matters that would otherwise fall within devolved powers if they related to Scotland.
  2. Revision of the Barnett Formula. We want a full debate and vote in the House of Commons to rebalance this arbitrary and out-of-date concept.
  3. No taxation without equal representation. The Electoral Commission must determine new boundaries for the constituencies of Scottish MPs so that the average number of constituents more closely resembles that in England.
  4. A Constitutional Convention. Such a Convention needs to be rapidly established to put in place a plan for a Federal UK.

Since it’s release yesterday, the petition has collected more than 4,400 signatures… The target is 10,000.

Please help make a fairer nation and sign today.

Thank you.

  1. Just passed the target of 10,000 signatures! In 48hrs!

  2. Signed also it said 7219 when I started so I take that to mean 7220 for the next lucky person
    I agree with Panmelia`s comments also.
    Would also take the opportunity of pointing out that we don`t need a Referendum; the 2015 GE will in effect be a referendum a vote for UKIP is a vote to exit the EU and that is a necessary condition to be achieved before any constitutional settlement can have “real” legitimacy.

  3. Signed. The petition has attracted over 5,000 votes in the first 24 hours. On over 5,600 now…

  4. Signed, and circulated to Branch members. Ed Miliband need never mention the word ‘democracy’ again. He has refused a referendum on the EU and now he wants to save his snivelling party by denying that Scottish MPs voting on English-only issues is unfair. If it were 41 Scottish Conservative MPs forming the tail that wags the dog, he’d be all for denying THEM the vote at Westminster. Like all Socialists, he favours democracy when it happens to serve the Socialist cause; otherwise it’s expendable.
