The Ruth, The Whole Ruth & Nothing but The Ruth

Today’s Prime Ministers Questions did nothing but compound the outrage I already felt over the manner in which any chance of debate on the effect of Brexit legislation on devolution was last night filibustered into oblivion my the government. When John Bercow ejected Ian Blackford for insisting on a vote during PMQs and the whole SNP group followed him out, Tory accusations that this was “a stunt” added insult to injury.

The whole tasteless affair had me fired up to blog about it. But, fortunately, before I got far with my fizzing response, I came across a much more powerful and measured piece from Ruth Wishart. She is a doughty, dependable and insightful observer of the Scottish scene and I thoroughly recommend that you read her piece.
