Bids for more devolved powers are flooding in from the English regions.
Here's a guest post from my colleague, Tim Donovan, the BBC's political editor in London.
"London's mayor Boris Johnson seized on the prime minister's remarks that details about a new devolutionary deal for cities will be revealed soon.
He had just the plan, he said. Proposals in his London Finance Commission - chaired by the LSE expert Tony Travers - would give control of all property taxes - stamp duty, business rates, council tax (which would be revalued) - to City Hall and the boroughs.
It would amount to London raising about 12% of what it spends - still way behind cities like New York - and it appears to have cross-party support and backing across sectors in the capital.
Aftershocks and apprehension
The aftershocks of the referendum will dominate the next parliament.
Week ahead in the European Parliament
MEPs return to Strasbourg for the first time since the summer recess, and for only the second plenary session since May's European Parliament elections.
My colleague Alasdair Rendall has been having a look at what's happening this week in the European Parliament.
Why Andrew George's benefit bill may become law
A glimpse of the coalition yet to come?
A Lib-Lab alliance has just voted Andrew George's Affordable Housing Bill through second reading and registered a considerable parliamentary/political coup in the process.
Next week offers a blend of solemn world affairs and feverish internal politicking, as Westminster debates crises across the world and attempts to solve its internal battle over the appointment of a new Clerk of the Commons.
Meanwhile, will the week end with a bill to commit the UK to meet the UN's target for aid spending being humanely killed to clear the way for the EU Referendum Bill?
Clerk row rumbles on
Mr Speaker Bercow is now on an ASBO - an Amiable Speaker Behaviour Order.
His retreat from appointing the Australian Parliament's Carol Mills as the successor to Sir Robert Rogers as Clerk of the Commons should - just - be enough to ensure his survival in the Chair until the next election, so long as he allows the process to be managed by MPs and refrains from intervening, and from finding other ways to annoy Conservative MPs.
Private members games
Two layers of parliamentary game-playing should make Friday's sitting of the Commons an interesting affair.
It's the start of the private members bill season, with the first measure in the queue the Lib Dem Andrew George's Affordable Homes Bill.
It was supposed to be a quiet uncontroversial couple of weeks, with the Commons September sitting observing pre-referendum purdah, in much the same way as MPs avoid controversial business in the run-up to local and euro-elections.
But events, dear boy, have intervened, and so the pre-arranged agenda for the first week of September may be little more than a basis for negotiation, when MPs return.
BBC Parliament - To War!
To mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, I'm presenting a night of special programmes on Sunday on BBC Parliament.
Here's what we have in store:
Parliamentarians of the year
It is quite easy for the backbenchers, the parliamentary rank and file, who're not holders of grand office as ministers or party spokespersons, to fall into thinking of themselves as pondlife, but the last parliamentary year has provided an object lesson on what an individual MP or peer can achieve. So today I thought I'd nominate my most influential backbench MP and Peer of the year.
Step forward, from the Commons, Conservative backbencher John Baron. He's not a household name or a fiery orator, but his fingerprints are all over the two most significant parliamentary events of the last 12 months.
