And for St George\’s Day, why not an English Parliament?

7 OUT OF TEN BACK ENGLISH PARLIAMENT AS POWER2010 PROJECTS ‘HOME RULE’ ONTO WESTMINSTER

Guerilla-style projection brands Westminster the English Parliament for St George’s Day

Two thirds of voters (68%) in England believe England should have its own Parliament with similar powers to those of the Scottish Parliament, according to a new ICM poll for the Rowntree-backed democracy campaign group POWER2010 published on St George’s Day.

The findings come as POWER2010 stage a huge guerrilla-style projection of the St George’s flag with the words ‘Home Rule’ onto the Palace of Westminster to brand it English for a day.

The ICM poll shows a large majority (70%) of voters say that laws for England should be made by the House of Commons but only MPs representing English constituencies should be able to vote on them. English Votes on English Laws (EVoEL) is one of the five changes to fix politics backed by over 100,000 votes which now forms the POWER Pledge being put to all candidates standing in the General Election.

There is more here.

Quite simply, if the Celts get to rule themselves, why don\’t the English?
