In Praise of The Scottish Parliament
You never hear the Scots complaining about their parliament. The Scottish Parliament is lively and dynamic and excels in the quality of its debates. In comparison with the Scottish Parliament the "parliament" at Westminster is but a pale shadow, riven by feuding and fractious politics. Scotland has been blessed with a model parliament where consensus is often achieved through straight talking and good-humoured repartee. The people of Scotland are justifiably proud of their parliament and its concern for their welfare. It is well-equipped for the task of guiding the nation towards independence.
