Not meaning to steal Phil’s thunder…

…but I meant to mention this yesterday and it slipped my mind, so now is as good a time as any. For those who are unaware, the Scottish Parliament (which can legislate on, and is responsible for, most domestic matters in Scotland) has an election on the 3rd of May of this year, and it looks like the Scottish National Party, which ultimately seeks Scottish independance, will become the largest party in the Parliament, at least according to opinion polls. However, it would not have enough seats to have an overall majority. And in such situation, the Scottish Green Party would quite probably be the kingmakers of any new coalition, whether it be Labour or SNP led. It’s an interesting situation, and I’ll go into it in more detail soon.
