“I’m not convinced there is a case for an England-only parliament,” he said in comments reported by the National. “We have an England-only parliament. It’s Westminster. It’s been there for a long time. I’m not disposed to create another parliament.”
Boris Johnson 30th June 2019
The above quote makes an important point when considering the legitimacy of the 2021 Scottish Parliament with a majority of Independence minded MSP even a SNP majority calling a second Independence referendum without the authority of Westminster.
If English MPs ever wanted to end the Union then could easily do so solely by the numbers of English MPs
Under David Cameron's English Voted fo English Laws (EVEL) , other parts of the UK would have no say and it would be solely the English Parliaments choice even if it wasn't conducted under EVEL , they would be y sheer weight of numbers push any legesaltion for English Independence through , should they choose to do so.
But no matter if the whole of the Scottish Parliament even with an electoral mandate wanted a Second Independence referendum in 20121 Westminster and English MPs could still block it.
OK its a very unlikely scenario but the fact that it is possible show 's how unequal the "Precious Union" is.
English MPs can and should have the right to decide their Nations future , so why can't the other legislatures have the same right?
We can only look to Catalonia where such arrogance leads in denying an Independence referendum.
Scotland may not want to go down that road , but if it does all democratically minded people should support it.
