Alison Rowat: Why SNP MPs should be afraid, very afraid, of a Labour victory
I had expected yesterday’s main event, the appearance of former First Minister Alex Salmond before the Scottish Affairs Committee, to be a packed to-the-rafters affair, yet some seats were unoccupied. Perhaps a roomful of MPs talking about intergovernmental relations, in this case between UK and Scottish administrations, is not quite the draw one imagines. Shame, really, because the occasion had much to recommend it.
