Why Ed Miliband must accept home rule for the English, by Labour MP Frank Field

Daily Mail
What Parliament must do is set to work on determining a new formula to redistribute resources so that the poor are treated equitably in whichever of the four countries they live. The current Scottish feather-bedding by Westminster has had its day. But it must be phased out over a good period of time so as not to injure future Scottish prosperity.
Thursday’s referendum result has shaken up the political kaleidoscope in an almost revolutionary manner. Never in my 35 years in Parliament has politics been more important. Our future is now more in our hands than ever before. If that doesn’t excite politicians and voters alike, nothing will."
