Take out the Trash Day

Fan of the West Wing? Then you’ll know the episode.
The SNP Government has used Budget Day to bury a string of their own bad news stories with a list of failures and u-turns, including:
- Another U-turn on the Scotland Bill, the SNP say they will now support the current Scotland Bill despite opposing tooth and nail since 2007.
- Admission from Mike Russell that some schools still have serious concerns about Curriculum for Excellence - today he launched an additional package of measures designed to help schools worried about being ready on time and the impact it would have on pupils.
- A startling admission from Nicola Sturgeon that NHS Lothian has systemically fiddled waiting lists.
