Salmond does the decent thing

Alex Salmond is apparently entitled to two salaries, but he has insisted he will only take one. This is an honourable approach.

Under the terms of the Scotland Act, politicians sitting in both Holyrood and Westminster, are entitled to an MP's salary of £60,000 plus a third of the £53,000 paid to MSPs. Nice little earner. I think this just goes to show the mind of that great devolutionist, Gordon Brown, who was very much behind this recipe from hell.

He still thinks England has got a fair settlement. He won't hear the last of this. Like Blair's legacy is the killing fields of Iraq, Brown's will be the day the English hung him out to dry (metaphorically speaking, of course!).
