Yes! I've just been reading some of the English media comment on todays' manifesto launch in Edinburgh and wondering if it's better than being ignored as of old. What do you think?

Oh yes, it's better than being ignored. But ignoring the democratic voice of Scotland, or demonising that voice because it no longer sings the Labour or Conservative party tunes, are the attitudes of those who are irked by the constitutional realities and selective in the political obligations of participating in that very same process. We are back to the school bully whose personal power base and misguided sense of inherited privilege are threatened by those deemed inferior. Let's have democracy they say, but not if the choices of the electorate challenge the vested interests of up-till-now powerful partisan politics.
