What about English? YourSay.

WE ENGLISH sit as dispossessed urchins with noses pressed to the window as the five million Scots, 3.7 million Welsh and 1.7 million Northern Irish have their national leadership debates.

Currently we are experiencing the British leadership debates and as they progress we see three men in dark sombre suits trying to hide the massive red and white elephant in the room.

The glaring omission, of course, is the national debate for the 50 million people of England.

Seventy per cent of our population think that we English deserve a parliament but the three men relying on our votes do not.
