The Two Classes Of MP’s In The House Of Commons
It’s amusing sometimes to see just how stupid our politicians really are. Over the years we have heard that creating English Votes on English Laws would disbar some MP’s taking part in all affairs in the House of Commons. They claim it would create two classes of MP’s in Westminster if the voting rights of some MP’s are limited. They don’t seem to understand the nature of devolution and don’t realise that there are already two classes of MP’s in the Commons.
When an MP is elected from an English Constituency they are elected to serve their constituents on ALL matters, ranging from education to pensions. All business. However, when an MP is elected from a Scottish constituency to Westminster they are limited to representing their constituents on non-devolved matters, such as defence and foreign affairs. Other business, such as transport and health, falls within the remit of the elected Member of the Scottish Parliament.
The argument put forward by those who say that having EVEL’s will create two classes of MP’s in Westminster are talking rubbish. It already exists.
