The cost of - Scottish - politics

Having a quick break from Tomcat so thought I would present a random factoid. David Cameron has said quite a bit about the "cost of politics" and I was surprised to just learn what the cost of Scottish politics is to the British taxpayer.

Over the past five years, according to information released under Freedom of Information, Scottish MSPs cost the British taxpayer - in salaries and expenses - £78,582,000. The price of devolution huh?
