This piece from the Daily Record today is interesting.
Blimey, what about that Richard Baker?
Spinning like a peerie so he is.
And what about Ian “If I had been First Minister, Megrahi would not have been released” Gray? What has he got to say about it?

The whole stushie about the resignation of Scottish transport minister Stewart Stevenson resigning is a microcosm of the blame culture we live in.
The Labour party and Ian Gray are at the forefront of this culture it would seem. When it became clear that if Stevenson didn’t resign there would be a no confidence motion, then he had no choice.
What I have still to hear is what should have been done prior to the completely unprecedented and freak weather conditions which befell Scotland last Monday. Some say they were forecast but is that so? The forecast was almost identical to that of the previous week when conditions were not nearly so bad.
Should Stevenson have stepped in and closed the motorway network on the Sunday night? How foolish would that have been if the snowfall had been not quite so bad and an hour or two later?
How much fun would the Record and Sun have had at his expense then?
So now any transport minister faced with freak weather conditions has to resign if there is ensuing chaos on the roads.
Mr Gray may well rue the day he set the precedent.

The contest to captain the Titanic lead Scottish Labour, continues.
I see my friend Fern Cake (see comments) has as always got his finger on the political pulse. According to The Times it could be that Ian Gray and Margaret Curran may stand as a “Dream Ticket”. There is still speculation that Cathy Jamieson will stand and she could team up with John Park standing as a “Hard Ticket”.
Who are you lookin’ at?
Tetchy old hack Angus McLeod says in the same paper that “Nelson Mandela could not win the next Holyrood election for Labour”. That statement would seem to work on several levels.
