The CALMAN COMMISSION'S proposals were yesterday rejected by THE LABOUR PARTY and in particular, GORDON BROWN through his mouthpiece JIM MURPHY.
THE SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT'S request that they implement transference of powers to Scotland of air weapons, traffic offences and control over elections was declined. These were all parts of the conclusions which Sir Kenneth Calman had said could be implemented quickly.
With the LIB/DEMS seemingly cooling on the whole process and now Labour refusing to give the Commission any teeth, it is left to the Conservatives to champion this EXPENSIVE, UNIONIST, PANIC-DRIVEN NONSENSE.
Let's wait for a proper consultation on Scotland's powers, as is being undertaken now by the SNP GOVERNMENT, before jumping to any regrettable decisions.
