Scottish Labour MPs

It's no surprise to me that Adam Ingram, John Robertson and Jim Sheridan are leading a charge to return powers from the Scottish Parliament to Westminster as they have never fully accepted devolution Through loyalty to their leadership they have been forced to stew in their own juices for the last decade.

Using the nuclear energy fig leaf to protect their nakedness will deceive only a few - probably those who would prefer to see the abolition of the Scottish Parliament or to see MSPs neutered.

Their motivation is little to do with any considered analysis of the constitutional settlement. I suspect it's more to do with their crude, partisan opposition to fair votes and jealousy of those who are making decisions in Holyrood.
