A promise I'm glad they have broken

The SNP have kept their consistent record of broken promises with their announcement on sportscotland. Having pledged in their manifesto to abolish it, today they have given it more work and a higher profile. They've even kept its name! This time however, its a promise I am glad they have broken.

But its once again an example of the perils of populism. In trying to keep everyone happy, they have pleased no-one. And the move to Glasgow is an astonishing U-turn on their commitment to stop jobs leaving the Scotland's Capital City. But at least its consistent!
