Pension-ed Off.

Wouldn't it be nice to have the taxpayer cough up £32 million to cover a deficit in your pension fund?

"The Treasury accused the SNP of "gesture politics" over the row which saw Holyrood ministers claim they were forced to find £32m to fund a new police and firefighters' pension deal because they were given no money to match an English agreement."

Is there any issue in the world of the SNP controlled Scottish Government that isn't a potential source of disagreement between Holyrood and Westminster? Mr Smith thinks that the more of these argumetns that are had, the more credibility and goodwill the Scottish Government loses in the eyes of the Scottish voter.

There is a limit to how often you can cry wolf, and what happens when there is an issue that really matters?
