Human Rights for the English Students?
In Parliament the “Lothian Question” which queried whether Scottish MPs should vote on English only matters has never been resolved. Scottish MPs in the UK Parliament have always argues that THEY SHOULD BE involved in voting on English matters because it may affect Scotland.
The Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh has just changed the law to make the English, Welsh and Northern Irish (the non-Scots) pay 5 times more to go to Scottish Universities that Scots. This clearly shows voting in a parliament that does not consider any other nationality when voting! No voice for the English there, this is not fair.
If you live in Poland, France, Germany or anywhere in the EU you will pay no fees to attend a Scottish University. This is not fair and I'm getting really fed up with not having my views represented in parliament. We don't even have and “English Office” the way Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland used to, it's wrong.
Will we sleepily walk into the oblivion of the English nation, as those who can afford an education take the best jobs, the most money, and the least care of a kind sharing people who have for centuries given more opportunity to foreigners in their country than any other nation on earth.
Is the time coming when the sleepy English warrior who gently ignores the voices of those continually telling him he is nothing, he is wrong, he owes everybody something for wrongs that happened centuries ago, finally tires and looks again to flex his powerful muscles, find his voice and shout at last ENOUGH!!!
