Too right. Holyrood's responsibilities are Holyrood's, they're not Westminster's to take away or to grant as the mood takes them

I think that Westminster in theory has the right to abolish Holyrood with a single vote!

The nick of that boy complaining the Scottish government won't compromise.

"We're going to smother you in shite, ok?"
"No"
"Ok, we'll drench you in piss instead"
"No"
"WHY ARE YOU BEING SO UNREASONABLE?!!!!"

Agree, but that's with a vote so the topic would have to be brought forward, discussed then voted on before WM could act. As for the devolved powers themselves I thought the devolution legislation was enacted therefore not changeable without the same level of propose/discuss/vote....or am I a meringue?

It's only ever been a gentleman's agreement.
