The World Cup 2018 Scottish bid?

Tomorrow is Scottish questions and I couldn't help but notice a cheeky one tabled by Tory MP for Hammersmith and Fulham, Greg Hands.

He's asked the Scottish Secretary, Douglas Alexander whether he has recently discussed with Gordon Brown "his Ministerial colleagues on Scotland co-hosting the 2018 World Cup".

It made me chuckle anyway.

Well, you don't blame him for trying after all, they'll never qualify through the normal channels.

I wonder if the same question will be asked during either the Welsh or Northern Ireland questions.

Wales will front a joint bid with Scotland against England. The Millenium stadium is already in place, work has started on the new stadium for premiership chasing Cardiff City. Wrexham will have new stadium.

(England's bid will fail because the FA will be unable to give assurances on the opening date for Wembley)
