The Scottish Government has seemingly been offered £1bn to help build the Forth Road Bridge.
I don't know how this would fit with any SNP independence plans, gradualist or otherwise, but they have to take the money.
The party can't bemoan a £500m funding cut on the one hand and pass up a £1bn funding offer on the other.
Indeed, I daresay they could trumpet the result as their pushing for a better deal for Scotland but any way you want to look at it, there is now no room for manoeuvre over such an expensive project.
(NB: I remain sceptical that this bridge is even needed but the momentum is such that I don't see any of the main parties changing their minds on it now.)
