At least it would be English MPs increasing your fees?

With Thursday's decision on university tuition fees in England swiftly approaching, the Campaign for an English Parliament are:
... calling on all MPs elected in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to keep their noses out of English affairs and let English MPs decide how much to tax English university education.
The Conservatives hold 297 seats in England, that is an overall majority of 61. If it were an "England Only" vote, then obviously the Conservative policy on fee increase in England would be definitely carried.

It's a principled stand by the CEP but not one I think the vast majority of English students would thank them for.
