West Lothian question continues to puzzle
Lingering in the margins of Labour's conference on Sunday has been a simple question with a complicated answer: is the promise of further devolution to Scotland conditional on England getting the same?
Let us examine the evidence.
Early on Friday morning, a man relieved still to be prime minister of the United Kingdom stood in Downing Street and categorically linked the two issues together.
David Cameron said: "The question of English votes for English laws - the so-called West Lothian question - requires a decisive answer.
"So, just as Scotland will vote separately in the Scottish Parliament on their issues of tax, spending and welfare so too England, as well as Wales and Northern Ireland, should be able to vote on these issues and all this must take place in tandem with, and at the same pace as, the settlement for Scotland."
The politics of the English Question
The Downing Street constitutional declaration - as it will become known - marks the start of what potentially could be massive constitutional change.
In particular, the prime minister has promised to give English MPs a greater say over legislation that affects England. He made clear this would cover the same issues over which Scotland will have greater control - tax, spending and welfare. And the changes will be agreed at the same pace with draft legislation by January.
Conservative MPs asked about military action
So, the Conservative leadership has begun asking Tory MPs for their views about the possibility of military action against Islamic State.
One Conservative MP told me he had been asked two specific questions by his whip, an MP who enforces discipline in the House of Commons for the government.
Sir John Major praises immigrants for 'guts and drive'
Sir John Major has praised immigrants for having what he called "the very Conservative instinct" of wanting to improve their lives.
Immigrants had the "guts and drive" to travel halfway across the world to better themselves and their families, the former prime minister said.
What job might Lord Hill get in the new European Commission?
David Cameron has been quite clear that he wants Britain to have a big economic portfolio.
Cameron's reshuffle will be bigger than thought
David Cameron is preparing to carry out a far wider reshuffle of his government than had previously been thought.
Several sources in Whitehall have told me to expect substantial changes when the prime minister reshapes the team that he will lead in to the election.
Strikes present an opportunity for both unions and politicians
Perhaps your school was closed and you were forced to take a day off to look after the kids. Maybe your rubbish was not collected or your phone call not answered at the local council.
Perhaps the museum you planned to visit was shut or you struggled to cross the road because there was no one with a lollypop sign to help you.
Who will be Britain's next European Commissioner?
Forget, if you can, the heady excitement of the forthcoming government reshuffle.
What really should get your pulse racing are the new appointments that will shortly be made in Brussels.
Hints of defeat in UK battle against Juncker
David Cameron was clear. Despite being at odds with many EU leaders, he would continue to oppose the nomination of Jean-Claude Juncker as the new head of the European Commission.
It was essential, the prime minister said, that Europe's elected heads of government chose the new boss of the EU's executive body and not the European Parliament.
