So, when one of their careers is at stake it appears that Scotland's seven Members of the European Parliament are happy to forget their political differences and are happy to keep flogging a dead horse to stop the number of Scottish MEPs being cut by one.

"A CROSS-party group of MEPs will travel to Westminster today to press the case for Scotland not to take a reduction in numbers from seven to six. All seven current MEPs believe the cut, caused by the accession of Romania and Bulgaria, is unfair and the group will meet Bridget Prentice, deputy to Justice Secretary Jack Straw, to try to avert the reduction."

That's dedication for you. But they should just give up and get on with their day jobs. Blame it on the Bulgarians.
