The SNP Do The Splits

In the new SNP cabinet the junior ministers under John Sweeney's finance and sustainable growth brief are Jim Mather as minister for enterprise, energy and tourism, and Stewart Stevenson as minister for transport, infrastructure and climate change.

Now I would have thought keeping energy and climate change together made sense and transport and tourism. Instead the numpties split them, still they are all a bit new at this. Not quite sure what 'infrastructure' is, of course I know what it means, but not how it's a part of a department, but no doubt all will be revealed.

p.s. there's also a minister for the environment so that ought to produce some interesting discussion between Mather, Stevenson and Mike Russell the M of E.
