With 56 of 59 MPs the SNP have at least a claim fo its claim to speak for Scotland but it seems that this may well be the case of a mandate for their claim to speak for Scotland
But as the National pointed out on Monday:
The sole Scottish Tory now the new Scottish Secretary, David Mundell, and his new shadow, Labour’s Ian Murray the sole Labour Scottish member ,will face each other of whilst the 56 will have to wait to be called by the Speaker and as often happens in Welsh Questions Tories in particular from English Constituencies may well to ask questions on the Government- Opposition 1-1 practise we see in PMQ's
It may be that speaker John Bercow who still faces a coup from Tories who seek to replace him may consider finding allies on the SNP benches and seek to change this convention
No such problem exists alas in Wales with .Welsh 11 Tories on the government benches there surely no need for English backwoodsmen to take part in Welsh Questions but don't bet on it
The other question of mandate in Scotland will clearly come from the renewal of Trident . Whilst no-one can deny with majority the Tories have they will implement it . But do they have a mandate to keep it in Scotland ?
With a majority SNP government in Holyrood opposed to Trident in Scotland and the vast majority of the Scottish MPs . Imposing Trident on Scotland looks like colonialism and brings into question the constitutional settlement.
Alas no such question arise here in Wales . Wales may have voted for Non Tory parties but if you read the media it looked liked a Tory landslide here. Our colon ism will continue unabated and unless we quickly realise that the answer is not for Labour to broaden its appeal to Tory voters but to fight for Wales even the existence of our Assembly remains threatened.
