I humbly recant...

It has come to my attention that I suggested earlier on this week that...
"...the positions of the various Scots political parties on the issue seem increasingly to have crystallised - and the Calman cronies, by consequence, look increasingly likely to fudge matters, disappointing everyone - or simply doing what they are told, and taking a generous dollop of time to say so."
I obsequiously, abashedly, and fulsomely retract this suggestion. In the light of this tale, there is clearly no danger of fixing matters behind the scenes. Or in front of it, apparently.

No appointments to the The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle being earned out of this little commission, methinks.

  1. To be honest I don't know why the Lib-Dems are going to bother with a submission.

    They've already been told that their dreams of fiscal federalism or was that federal fiscalism or perhaps federally fiscal autonomy or perhaps autonomous fiscal federalism are as dead in the water as Titanic post-Iceberg as far as Calman are concerned.

    The score so far. The Tories aren't going to bother with a submission, Labour have managed to get a submission in, just, and the Lib-Dems forgot what day it was after the bitter disappointment of being left hanging and swinging in the breeze with a body fluid stained, copy of the, "Steel Report", aka, "David Owen's Pocket Warmer's Wish List", stuffed into a certain body cavity by Labour and the Calman Commission.

    If the Tories don't care, the Lib-Dems can't remember and Labour bought flowers in the Garage on the way home why should anyone else bother with the Calman Commission's special date?
