Murdo Fraser MSP, a Conservative politician in the Scottish parliament is to propose new legislation on private parking charges and 'penalties'.

He outlines his thinking on

Whilst using language presenting this as in defence of the driver, I can't help but feel suspicious that he may be pandering to the companies.

The main thrust seems to be to bring Scots law in line with the changes made to English law over the past few years including keeper liability.

What parts of English law would you suggest we adopt, and which should we run a mile from?

Read this. Fraser backed a previous attempt by the BPA to bring in keeper liability in Scotland. Everyone should log onto the the Scottish Parliament website and point out the disaster and court shambles keeper liability has heap-ed on other parts of the UK. This is a Trojan Horse.

That's not what the linked blog post says. It says he backed the BPA's call for a "single standard setting body, accountable to government, and which can be fully funded by the private parking sector", and says nothing at all about keeper liability. Did you intend to link to something else?
