The Three Nations, and England

Scots Secretary role consigned to history books after 305 years - Scotsman.com News

THE post of Scottish Secretary is set to be scrapped at Westminster as a consequence of the IRA being declared redundant as a paramilitary organisation.
The post – which was created in 1703 and even pre-dates that of prime minister – will be replaced by a Secretary of State for the Nations...amalgamating the posts of Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish secretaries.

And of course England isn't a Nation, just a bunch of regions....

Why not go the whole hog and call the new post "Colonial Secretary"

Will he/she be responsible for the English nation?

The Minister responsible for England is the Chancellor of the Exchequer who is in charge of HM Revenue & Customs - tax doesn't raise itself you know.
