    There are rumours swirling about that Cameron will offer the Scots full fiscal autonomy (not so much an offer as "This is what's going to happen"; can't say I'm against that. The Scots voted for nationalism and separatism, they can hardly say, "No, we don't actually want fiscal autonomy" because they know they would be in massive deficit)

    I hear that Cameron wants to turn the Commons into an English parliament most days of the way, however retaining other MPs. The Lords will become a federal chamber

    I actually quite like what ConservativeHome proposed

    In any case, apparently we will hear quite soon what is going to happen re Scotland and federalism

    I thought it was the Lib Dems who wanted an elected house of lords. In anycase I agree they should be elected of they need exist at all

    I'm not a fan.. at all.

    FFA is probably needed to stop them going in the short term but in the long term all it does (like EVEL) is amplify legal division which over time amplifies cultural division. We also don't need a separate English Parliament.

    The idea of a regional senate is the best i've heard for the long term preservation of the union although in the short term we'd risk Scotland going.
