groundhog.jpgYesterday was Groundhog Day, and just two days later Holyrood will redo the whole three-week Budget process in two hours and twenty-six minutes. Stage 1 and Stage 2 are scheduled to take just 10 minutes together. That 48-hour gap is perfectly inconvenient timing for the media, given their love of a good metaphor, but there we go. 

Last week Parliament was uncooperative, partly because the Government wasn't doing enough about climate change, but tomorrow some of the other Parliamentary wildlife are sure to vote for and unfreeze the Budget. But will the Cabinet Secretary look out of his burrow and decide that it's worth delivering our insulation proposal after all? Too early to tell.
