A master of political strategy

How clever George Osborne has been with his announcement on more devolution for Scotland:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-29099431

While seeming to respond to Scottish demands he is quietly dumping the subsidy of Scotland by English taxpayers (thus allowing room for tax cuts in England).

He is also paving the way for a reduction in the number of Scottish MPs at Westminster, which can only help the Conservatives.

How ironic if Alex Salmond and the SNP, after all their efforts, deliver to the Scottish people less money and less influence.

What a master of political strategy George Osborne is.
