Tavish - what a Tumshy!
It's a blogging frenzy this weekend. Well, I decided to take a day off today and do things like wash some clothes, do some shopping, phone family members, empty the rubbish, watch the repeat of the X Factor (!) etc etc and because I was at home doing all these things I've been able to update the blog. I've devoted a fair bit of it to the new Leader of Scottish Labour (MSPs only) but I can't end the weekend without saying what I think of the new Leader of the Lib Dems in Scotland.
Step forward Mr Tavish Scott or as my dad would have called him after his ridiculous tax calls this weekend, Mr Tumshy Scott. What an eejit. He wants the Scottish Government to cut income tax by 2% as a matter of urgency! That'll be tomorrow then. Oh what a great idea. I mean it was such a generous "settlement" Westminster "gave" us this year and our public services are just awash with cash - in danger of drowning in it all I'd say.
So really, I can't think of any reason for Alex Salmond to get to work on Monday morning and do as Tavish suggests. Can you?
