Shadow state? Scotland's IT independence creeps forth

Re: Jeez

I'd point out three things:

The SNP are not an opposition party: they've been in government for eight years, including being re-elected with a greater share of the vote.

The Scottish Government has always balanced its books - it must, because it does not have borrowing powers (although the previous Scotland Act is about to introduce some, and who knows what we'll get along with road signs in the current Scotland Bill).

Unlike most governments, the SNP's popularity in polls has consistently increased since they took power, although the extent to which this is due to their competence, as opposed to them just being less incompetent than anyone else (witness Scottish Labour's implosion at the last Westminster election), could be debated.
