NP: Speak for England?

Tam Dalyell asked the dreaded West Lothian Question in 1977. In 1999 Tony Blair transformed it from a mere capital-Q Question into a capital-P Problem. Now a Scotsman is Prime Minister and the truth that England is ruled from without is becoming ever harder to evade or shrug off. In Friday’s National Post I ask what happens when a powerful leader bakes a recipe for asymmetrical federalism from scratch.

'the Scots' politically sensitive education grant is allowing them to eliminate university tuitions.'

To be more specific, they have eliminated tuition fees for students from Scotland. Because of European law this means that students from the rest of EU also benefit from this if they attend Scottish universities. However students from England, Wales and Northern Ireland who study in Scotland have to pay the full amount!
