Farage: ‘English want fair settlement’

19 Sep, 2014

UKIP leader Farage criticizes the UK government’s handling of the referendum, as granting more powers to the Scottish Parliament worsens what he says is an advantage over England for Scotland gained via devolution:

The way that Westminster handled this was abysmal from the start. A series of promises were made on behalf of the English. The English are 86% by population of this union, they’ve been left out of all of this [The Barnett formula] for the past 18 years … what most English people want is a fair settlement.
