The residents of Scotland must be delighted to see Holyrood addressing the really important issues.

I'm not sure why they are complaining about Scottish boxes.....they are a bit hairy but offer up a can of Tennant's lager you can get into them quite easily.

I am very uncomfortable watching that smart modern parliament with those normal looking people debating with each other.

You think a parliament headed by a Krankie is normal?

I don't have a problem with the Scottish Parliament power should be as close to the people as possible and if this irks the people of Shetland then they should be heard.

One of my many grumbles about May's lack of a Brexit strategy is the devolution of power. From day 1 I would have told the Scottish people that post Brexit as much power as possible would be transferred from the EU to the Scottish Parliament with the accompanying monies.

That would have scuppered Nicola Sturgeon as how can you argue against more power. Instead the snippets I am hearing indicate the UK government is holding onto a lot of the power which of course is just what Sturgeon wants so she can play the independence card.

Anyway I hear the parliament is doing its bit for renewable energy by generating a lot of hot air.

She can't. Firstly it's not her decision, as that power has not been devolved, and secondly they've already had one and aren't getting another any time soon.

On the subject of transferring powers, it seems more than sensible to wait until we've got them back from the EU before we decide what to devolve.

And back on topic, how bleeding pointless.

 


Optimistic as ever

I dunno but there seem to be a lot of murders there but only about five police officers; one called “Tosh”.

If the Scots declared independence they would be up and running in 2 years.

And rid of Westminster once and for all.

If only we in England had such a choice.

Well, Westminster's in England so I'm not sure what confusion that would cause.

Is the title of this thread not an oxymoron?
