Just a short post, because this is a very simple point. In the immediate aftermath of the Smith blueprint being published, the UK government and the unionist parties said that the proposals would give Scotland "one of the most powerful devolved parliaments in the world", or more specifically "the third most powerful devolved parliament in the world". There was a very good reason why the claim was not "the most powerful". I draw your attention to this summary of the powers held by the devolved parliaments of the Basque Country and Navarre -
"The four Basque Provinces which are part of the Spanish State enjoy considerable fiscal autonomy, comparable to that of any EU Member State."
Self-evidently, the Smith package does not clear that bar. So when David Cameron changed his language after the election, and explicitly started promising "the most powerful devolved parliament in the world", it was impossible not to reach the logical conclusion that he must have decided to go considerably further than Smith. Curiously, though, David Mundell insisted yesterday that Smith was the right package for Scotland.
Something doesn't add up here. Either we're going to have the most powerful devolved parliament in the world, or Smith is the right package for the Scotland. There's no possible way in which both of those statements can be true.
Incidentally, the Spanish autonomous communities have powers over broadcasting as well.
