Serving Scotland Better?

Went to the launch of the final Calman Commission report this morning - all the relevant documents can be found here ...

... don't intend to give a "recommendation-by-recommendation" account of the report - you'll be relieved to hear! The Scottish Press will be completely awash with analysis over the coming days, I'm sure :-(

I would note though that at the launch event, Calman himself said this was "an important start to the process of change" and stressed the title of the document on several occasions during his opening contribution - "Serving Scotland Better".

Putting whether you think the report goes 'far enough' to one side, I defy anyone to disagree (Nationalists included) that this report's recommendations will 'serve Scotland better' and that they do indeed form part of 'the process of change'?

Wouldn't it be refreshing if the SNP just acknowledged these points and welcomed the report for what it is?
