Well, let's have the case for the prosecution.....
Here is the policy announced yesterday by the SNP, promising a Scottish Future Fund to provide, among other things, a new digital economy, early intervention for kids and warmer homes.
Page 88 of the Scottish Liberal Democrat manifesto gives details of a Scottish Futures Fund to invest in creating 100,000 jobs, a new digital economy, an early intervention revolution and more home insulation.
You know what, though - ours is five times bigger than theirs thanks to Jeremy Purvis' innovative idea which involves turning Scottish Water into a Public Benefit Corporation. Chief Secretary to the UK Treasury Danny Alexander seems to like the idea too, today calling it "credible and strong". He said:
“The Scottish Lib Dems have put forward a credible and strong plan for the future of Scottish Water. “This plan has the potential to be a real win win for Scotland and the UK. “If the next Scottish Government has the political courage to take forward reform of Scottish Water, George Osborne and I will be very open to their constructive proposals.”
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery - and that certainly seems to be the case here.
