Annabel Goldie, leader of the Scottish Conservatives, has won a number of major consessions in return for supporting the SNP's budget.
The thing which strikes me is the Lib Dem reaction to these negotiations. They are calling it "back room dealings" and seem genuinely upset that a minority party (us) are negotiating with the government (SNP).
Well that is how PR government works! If you don't like it, stop calling for it.
I'm not sure why this should come as a surprise.
LibDim policy is made on one principle and one principle alone: what will gain us any measure of power? This attitude is well-known in campaigning circles, where the LibDim candidates will switch policies depending on what they think their audience wants to hear. This is why the other parties loathe LibDim campaigners.
The LibDims are simply irritated that it is the Scottish Conservatives who the SNP have decided to treat with, and not the LibDims.
