I'm breaking my own "no politics" rule but only because I find this piece so amusing. Having had all their best policies hi-jacked by the Labour party in recent weeks, the Tories have come up with one that Gordon Brown couldn't possibly covet: taking away the right of Scottish MPs (including Mr Brown) to vote on issues relating to England.
The idea of keeping the Scots in check makes a popular headline, and it certainly made me smile, but I don't think anyone will take it seriously. There are 72 Scottish MPs in Westminster who would not look favourably on this suggestion and what about the many apparently English representatives with names like Cameron?
While the West Lothian Question is occupying our MPs and journalists, Alex Salmond gets the best line: “There are some people who say the English are not ready to govern themselves, but I think they are.”
