Incest could become legal in scotland if both are over 21?

This article was published midnight tonight, apparently the powers that be still find it ‘abhorrent’ but even so, it is progress if it is being talked about:

I doubt this petition will legalize incest because there is so much prejudice against it, however, I also think that it is a good thing that debate is happening and that the issue is being raised and even being up for debate in the first place. Even if this petition does not yield the desired results, it is a step in the right direction, and the barometer of current political opinion.

I will keep my readers updated as soon as I learn more on this.
