Let them eat cake
A giant cake to celebrate 1 year of general floundering was served up in Scotland to highlight the achievements of Scotlands fledgling puppet parliament.
In essence the parliament was a reasonable idea, but as long as its Labour members do as London says it will be a lame (and very costly) duck.
The virgin MSPs are at least learning first hand how a government can run, but
next May lets hope it is the SNP and not Lib-Lab who call the shots.
