You'd think so, reading today's Scotsman,who says that Lib Dems in Scotland are plotting to oust Secretary of State for Scotland Michael Moore.
It says that Liberal Democrat sources have told the Scotsman that they want to push forward our plans for greater devolution of power. Well, of course we should. We'll be facing an independence referendum shortly - you won't find many Liberal Democrats who think we shouldn't advance the ideas in the Steel Commission. We need to make them a bit less academic and a bit more relevant but to me they are the best of all worlds - you have the greater autonomy and accountability as well as the benefits of being part of something bigger. What's not to love?
The Scotsman describes a "gaping split" between Mike Moore and some Scottish Liberal Democrats. Well, he's implementing in its entirety what was in our manifesto which was transferred straight into the Coalition Agreement. If the Tories had been governing alone, it's likely none of this would have been happening.
What's completely and utterly ludicrous is that Lib Dem sources are quoted as saying we should celebrate the SNP victory. It would be churlish not to congratulate the SNP, but the very idea that any of us could possibly celebrate our friends and colleagues being beaten is pure fantasy.
Every single time Mike Moore goes to meet Alex Salmond we get some sort of story in the press which is clearly aimed at undermining him. You have to ask yourself in whose interests it is to make that happen. There can only be one answer - Alex Salmond.
There is a huge amount of affection for Mike Moore in the Scottish Liberal Democrats. During this recent election campaign, he was a total superstar, supporting campaigns and candidates all over the country.
I've said before that I think he's too cautious sometimes. He can be too polite and let our opponents get away with all sorts of nonsense at Scottish Questions, for example. If I were him today, I'd walk into the meeting with Salmond, congratulate him warmly, shake him by the hand and simply ask the question why on earth the First Minister is bothering to tinker with the Scotland Bill when it might well never be implemented. It doesn't come in until 2015 by which time we will have had a referendum on independence, which Salmond expects to win. What's the point of trying to change it?
It seems to me that Salmond just wants to pick an unnecessary fight with Westminster to bolster his own position. He should remember that respect works both way
