Ming Campbell & English Votes
A correspondent tells me I should watch yesterday's Daily Politics, where Ming Campbell made a complete arse of himself. My friends in the Campaign for an English parliament have sadly deluded themselves that Ming Campbell is a secret proponent of their cause, but they will have been shocked by what Ming apparently had to say yesterday. The video on the BBC website isn't working but he said he felt quite justified, as a Scottish MP, voting on English issues because some of his constituents had relatives in England! Unbelievable. Well Ming some of us have relatives in Scotland but it doesn't give our MPs a right to vote in the Scottish Parliament does it? If that's the best he can do I hope he beats Chris Huhne tomorrow.
