Manifesto reaction

The Scottish Liberal Democrats launched their manifesto yesterday. More about this again. The big central issue is the restructuring of the Scottish Water debt which would raise £1.5 billion for projects in Scotland.

That nice Mr Swinney thinks it cannot work, but he would say that, would'nt he? His advisors suggested he do this last summer, but he did not take it up. Probably because a good working relationship with the UK governmet is required.

We will doubtless hear more on this in the next few days. The manifesto is full of substance, and gives us something solid to work with going in to 5th May.
