Scottish Transport Minister says congestion fees only for England

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Douglas Alexander, MP for Paisley & Renfrewshire South, Transport Minister for England, Secretary for State for North Britain, is introducing legislation to impose congestion charging on England.

However, the legislation won’t apply in North Britain where the people who voted for him live because transport is devolved to the North British Parliament.

Why should an MP elected in North Britain be minister for a department that only has jurisdiction over England?
