So they all rolled over and one fell out ...

First Wendy, now Nicol Stephen has resigned as Leader of the Lib Dems in Scotland. I'm wondering if it's just that they can't stand not being in power. The Labour Party has been in control in Scotland for forever really and the Lib Dems? Well, they got a taste of power when they were in coalition with Labour in the Scottish Parliament until 2007. None of them seem to have adjusted to opposition terribly well. Hopefully (and I do mean this) their successors will do a better job than they do - after all, the people of Scotland deserve a thriving parliament where good strong debate is alive and well and the opposition do as good a job of scrutinising bills etc as the government does of running the country.
