Holtham Calman Confusion!

To celebrate the first birthday of the coalition between Labour and Plaid Cymru, the One Wales Government has announced a commission to investigate how Wales is funded - the Holtham Commission. Hip-Hip Hooray. High Time. I wish the commission all the best!

But according to the BBC, the Holtham Commission will run in parallel with the Calman Commission, which is investigating Scottish devolution!

The Calman Commission is the body set up out of spite by the opposition parties in the Scottish Parliament in order to attempt to undermine Alex Salmond's minority SNP government.

So what on earth is a commission, set up as part of an agreement with Plaid Cymru doing, giving legitimacy to a body that only exists to undermine its sister party in Scotland?
