Minority Fool

With the Scots Parliament now in recess, news reaches a grateful nation that Glasgow Labour MSP and Minister for Parliamentary Business, Margaret Curran, has embarked on a trip to New Zealand to find out how minority administration works for the governing party there.

The thought occurs that if she’d wanted to find out how a minority Labour administration manages parliamentary business, she could have saved a whole lot of money and carbon emissions by jumping on a train to Cardiff instead. I’m sure her Welsh Labour colleagues would have been delighted to explain how they’ve managed to run things since their coalition with the Lib Dems fell apart.
