Jack Straw condemns the Scottish government

Our beloved foreign secretary was on the Channel 4 news a short while ago. He mocked Iraq on the grounds that "one part of the government says one thing and another part says something else." Well, well. It's exactly the same here in Scotland where cabinet ministers are allowed to campaign against the policies of their own government. I hope that Jack Straw is not going to call for a joint US/UK military strike on Scotland but a "regime change" would be most welcome.
