Patience of a Saint

The SNP activist who shall remain nameless but who spent the last few days campaigning in Glasgow East before hopping gaily onto a flight back to Brussels where he works, only to discover he had a middle seat. It wasn't so much the seat that bothered him. Nor the position of it. More the two fellow travellers who flanked him. He'd Charles Kennedy on one side of him and George Foulkes on the other. (I'm guessing Lord Foulkes was to his right!) I'm not sure I could have coped even if I had tanked the drinks trolley in the way that he, apparently did! Anyway all I can do is salute this fellow SNP activist, not normally noted for his tolerance, and wish him better luck next time!
