There are clear signs, which are increasing every day, that the English are becoming more aware of their national identity despite the obstacles to this created by the British Labour, Conservative and Lib Dem parties supported by the Scottish and Wales Labour, Conservative and Lib Dem parties.
There are no English Labour or Conservative or Lib Dem parties.
The word ‘England’ was excluded from the Brit parties’ respective general election manifestos in 1997, 2001, 2005 and 2010.
We need a separate parliament (with its own Executive and bill drafting facilities) for the people of England. Both Scotland (pop 5 million) and Wales (pop 3 million) have these rights. The time is long over due for England (pop 52 million) to be treated no less equally.
