Haud me back

"Scottish" Labour's "submission" to the Smith Commission can be read here.
"It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours, that we are fighting, but for a derogation to allow a lower rate of fuel duty to be charged in remote rural areas of the Highlands and Islands - but only there and only in principle, mind - for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself".
For what more could we possibly ask? For what more could anyone reasonably hope?
