Ann,

Great links, thank you.  Compare and contrast Ian Dunt's article on Boris and Ms Sturgeon and Prof Leitch 's Q&A on Young Scot.  No contest.

 

Thanks for the links Ann. Great news about Alex ... yesterday .... and now I'm hearing that he's facing the prospect of a fresh police investigation following allegations linked to his time spent in London as an MP. They won't be happy until they see him six feet under.
