    I thought they were disbanding the Scotland Office.

    • It’s been rumoured, but the likelihood seemed to be that there would be no minister of state in a Scotland Office but a minister of state for Scotland in the department of constitutional affairs/Justice. The role of secretary of state for Scotland would then fall.

        Seems like it might have been time for him to go anyway. This way he gets to do it in a blaze of glory (or a blaze of something, at least).
        Reid scares the hell out of me.

        • Cairns has always seemed quite sensible and decent. I don’t think this is an ego trip for him.
          On the scariness of Reid – yep. He terrifies me. However, I think he would alarm Cameron too. Which might be fun.
