Following the shock resignation last night of Stewart Stevenson MSP as Scotland's Transport Minister, it appears that his replacement is to be Keith Brown MSP.
I am a little concerned that this is political rather than playing to his skills. He is currently Minister for Skills and Lifelong Learning and according to his biography has no transport experience.
Keith Brown is MSP for Ochil, which is to change to Clackmannanshire and Dunblane at the election and which the SNP will be entering the election with a notional majority of just 354.
