The case for devolution in England is supported by the fact that devolved powers to Scotland and Wales are working well and have now become accepted by the people they serve.
One of the practical consequences of devolution has been the decision by the Welsh Assembly and Scottish Parliament to either abolish or retain lower student tuition fees than those charged at English universities.
English devolution is based on the sound principle of completing the devolution process so that every English resident has the right to independent political representation.
The Westminster government has shown by its anarchic decision to increase tuition fees and prescription charges within England that they do not represent English residents.
Central control from Westminster under the present government has meant tuition fee rises, public-sector job cuts and austerity.
As Scotland has shown, it's not automatic that one of three British parties would actually take power in an English parliament.
As a Welshman living in England I do not get the same benefits that I would do living in Wales - it is a question of fairness and equality.
Whereever you live, you should receive the same benefits as your neighbour across the borders in Wales and Scotland and across the Irish sea in Northern Ireland.
