How many English MP's are there in the house of commons? 

It is and always has been the English parliament. And its the one that holds the vast majority of power.

Its odd that in my entire post that you quoted this was the only issue you have a fault with.

Of the 650 seats in parliament.

533 are English.

59 are Scottish.

40 are Welsh.

18 are from Northern Ireland.

And yet you think the English have no parliament?

My point stands.

If your point is that there are far more English MP's (533) in parliament than all the other countries (117) then yes it does.

English MP's regularly vote as a block upon issues which only affect Scotland/Wales or Northern Ireland within the union but have a hissy fit if the reverse happens. Hence the introduction of EVEL.

English votes for English laws. All you other lot dont get a say.

Then how on earth did not so long ago the "English Parliament" get TWO Scottish Prime Ministers.....?     🤔

And because of Brexit they will most likely be the last.

Pretty sure they all considered themselves to be British rather than Scottish. Gordon Brown most certainly does.

Indeed we even have a word to describe Browns independence opinions which are frequently given huge prominence in the media.

Its called a "Broontervention".
