A few weeks before the vote one YouGov poll showed a majority for a "Yes to independence" vote. This was one of only two polls that showed such a result.
This led to panic measures in the government. One of which was to make a "vow" that if Scotland was to vote "No" the Scottish Parliament would get a lot more power.
Unexpectedly, the result has led to calls for other changes in how laws are made, mainly over the minor impact that Scottish MPs have over laws in England (the votes from MPs in Wales and Norn Iron are apparently irrelevant...).
Some people - mainly Tories from the south and/or UKIP-types - are saying that we should now have "English Vote for English Laws"* (the acronym is, appropriately enough, EVEL), and that it should simply be based upon the number of MPs in Westminster from England. Coincidently enough, this would lead to a Tory majority, at least until next Spring.
Labour have said they'll hold a "constitutional convention" in which ideas can be submitted.
The Tories aren't suggesting that there should be a separate election nor that it should be based on anything remotely like a voting system that actually reflects the share of the vote. Again, and I'm sure that this is a complete coincidence, this would lead to a Tory majority until at least next Spring.
Given the importance and clear long-lasting effect that such a change would have on England, I think Labour's idea of a thought out way forward is much better than the Tories knee-jerk one.
Aside from the fact that it seems to be simply little more than an attempt by the Tories to entrench their power - and completely ignoring the fact that Parliament is effectively an "English Parliament": out of 650 MPs, England has 533 (82%), and so removing Scottish MPs wouldn't make a real difference - it doesn't actually deal with the main issue: that the government is too centralised and remote from the general public.
A much better idea would be to give powers similar to the Scottish Parliament - or even the Welsh Assembly - to English local government, either based on current boundaries or on a more regional basis. A good place to start would be the current boundaries that are used for EU elections: North-West/Yorkshire/London etc, albeit with splitting the "South-East" one into a "South Coast" and "Thames Valley" one. We have one in London, which works pretty well, but has little power. There are other possible ways as this piece by George Potter shows. City regions would also be an idea, as would a "quasi-federal UK".
Hopefully there will some sensible proposals that aren't simply used for short-term narrow political reasons in Westminster, and will benefit England as a whole.
* The Torygraph says that it would also include the Budget, which I think says a lot about the plansTweet
