Goodbye Scottish Secretary?

"THE post of Scottish Secretary will be scrapped after more than 300 years. The role, which was established in 1703, will be replaced by a Secretary of State for the Nations. It was reported today the move came as a consequence of the IRA being declared redundant as a paramilitary organisation."

Pity. It's the loss of a bit of Scotland's political history, but more significantly it would appear that the current government seems to be gradually surrendering what's left of its role in the governance of Scotland. That can only lead to increasing the odds of Scottish independence being achieved, and sooner rather than later.
