West Lothian Question centre stage after a bad night in Barking
With Blair now clearly on the way out and Brown the heir apparant in the not too distant future both PM and Home Secretary will (initially at least) be MPs representing Scottish seats. How will that happy coincidence go down with English electors in the subsequent General Election? Will asymetric constitutional change (ie dangerous tinkering) come back to haunt NuLabour?
RUMOUR - Five Live are questioning Hains' future in NI. I fear he will stay but let's see.
We can but live in hope. I won't hold my breath though; I fear Pete 'Troops Out' Hain is here to stay.
