Well done John Swinney - there ... I've said it ;-)
... if only he'd listened to the Really Bad Blog back in July, would have saved nearly eight-months of pointless uncertainty?
Now, if he wants to do something even more positive on the eve of our local budget-setting meeting here in Edinburgh ...
... why not scrap the anti-democratic concordat while he's at it - that really would give Local Authorities across Scotland something to cheer about!
