English Bob

In the movie 'Unforgiven', Little Bill Daggett (Gene Hackman) notes that English Bob (Richard Harris) possessed the inflammatory habit of praising the Queen on the Fourth of July.
Simon Heffer has published a commentary in the Daily Telegraph today entitled 'A Tory answer to the West Lothian question', calling for 'English votes on English laws'.
It's perfectly reasonable, until one remembers that, as previously noted, today is St. Andrew's Day... and that criticism of the devolution settlement today is not all that much unlike praising the Queen on the Fourth of July.
