Letter: Forgotten England

Sir: Labour and the Liberal Democrats gave enthusiastic support to the creation of assemblies for Northern Ireland and Wales and a parliament for Scotland. The Conservative Party misjudged the situation but has now grudgingly accepted it. Perhaps this week they will for once seize the initiative on devolution and come out in favour of an English Parliament. Or will all three parties continue completely to ignore the issue and see England dismembered into regions and rendered powerless?

Surely the people of England have the same right as those in other parts of the UK to be consulted about the future of their country. Democracy implies choice, but we are not being given it.
