Contempt for the people.
SCOTTISH MPs could come to Tony Blairís rescue after a survey revealed most are planning to vote on English university tuition fees.
Of the 57 Scottish MPs who responded to a survey for BBC Scotlandís Sunday Live show, 44 MPs indicated they would definitely vote on the issue - despite the fact the proposed top-up fees will only directly affect students in England and Wales.
This is simple contempt for democracy - the whole botched devolution process led to the as ever unanswered West Lothian Question of which this is the latest example.
(Tam Dalyell was the author of the celebrated West Lothian Question, he effectively raised the issue of why Scottish MPs at Westminster can vote on English domestic issues, such as education, whereas English MPs cannot vote on education in Scotland. )
It shows the utter contempt our leaders have for England (and Wales).
