Call for an English Constitutional Convention

England is the only nation in the UK which has never had a constitutional vote on its future. Wales has had three; Northern Ireland has had two, and; Scotland has had three.

In 2015 England celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta: The Great Charter of the Liberties of England. As part of those celebrations the people of England should assert their liberty and make claim to popular sovereignty: A nation not divided by ethnicity, class, geography and religion but instead united as a national community, coming together to determine our constitutional, democratic future.

English Constitutional Convention proposes the establishment of a Royal Commission on the Governance of England to be tasked with gathering evidence from around England with a view to making recommendations on English governance. Following on from that an English Constitutional Convention should be established to agree a scheme for English government. Ultimately resolution of the English Question will be determined by the people of England through a nation-wide referendum.

We hereby call upon the United Kingdom Government to acknowledge the sovereign right of the English people to determine the form of Government best suited to their needs, and call upon the United Kingdom Government to consult the English people on our constitutional future by way of an English Constitutional Convention and a referendum upon its conclusion.
