How many comeback tours can one blogger have?
Ah it's been a while. How have you been? I've been fine, just not had time to breathe far less blog recently so apologies for that particularly to the 50 folk who are still checking every day. Hopefully the others will come back soon. Anyway thanks for sticking with me.
To be honest I've been a bit bored with politics recently except for the odd thing that's interested me including Nicola Sturgeon's decision to stop car park charges at Scotland's hospitals. Her statement about it interested me as much as the decision itself. She said something like "people visiting hospital have enough stress to be contending with without having to find money for car parking".
That's what I like about Nicola, she understands ordinary people and how stressful their lives can be - very different to some politicians who've become very far removed from the rest of us.

They were the ones who allowed it to happen in the first place. Laugh? I nearly split my sides open.
