The Scotland Bill

Michael Moore will today be presenting the Scotland Bill, the contents of which will no doubt dominate the next four years in Holyrood, as well as the upcoming election campaign.

We are not expecting any surprises. The likely provisions are now well known, we just have to establish how they might work in practice and get a feel for the new dynamic that might then exist.

There will be different interpretations, of course, but this is what politics is about....debating and taking forwards the big ideas.

Westminster will be taking forward the legislation, but Holyrood will be doing the initial debating.

The Scottish Liberal Democrats are well represented, and right at the heart of things.

Expect plenty of analysis and a certain amount of ineffectual talk over the next few days and weeks.
