Stone of Destiny

Conservative MSP Murdo Fraser had a member's debate in the Scottish Parliament today, in which he stated the case for moving the so-called Stone of Destiny from its current home in Edinburgh Castle, back to its former resting place in Scone.

The Stone, of course, was moved to Edinburgh from the Coronation chair in Westminster Abbey ten years ago, on the instigation of the then Conservative Scottish Secretary Michael Forsyth, a Tory not a million miles away from Fraser on the political spectrum.
