Jordan Hatcher’s new/remodelled blog has a very good report on last night’s discussion of the Gowers Report (and its implications for Scotland). Looks like it was a good one. I’m particularly interested in this remark:

Scotland, it seems, is always left asking the above question. The Gowers report, as was pointed out, barely even mentions Scotland let alone gives serious consideration to the Scottish aspect of the recommendations in the report. If you are playing along at home, the answer twice in the body of the report — neither mention with any substance. For comparison, Germany gets mentioned 18 times with France close behind at 11. [Jeremy Phillips, of IPKat] noted that his 10 minute presentation was surely ‘longer than Gowers spent on Scotland’.
