No, because thats not a troublesome comment! Very Happy
  I was thinking more trouble-making than troublesome. Smile Or to use the vernacular, ****-stirring.

That's very bad that you would think that of me.

I'm actually looking forward to reading his story - I find him intriguing, he's an astute politician, extremely clever and could wipe the floor with most he comes up against.  I get why people don't like him but I do believe he is led by his love of his country and even his staunchest critics can not argue with what he's done for the Scottish people.  I Think his media image is borne from a fear people have because they know he knows his stuff, proven economist etc. 
As a previous life long labour voter and now SNP party member I think his decision to stand down was the right one, Nicola Sturgeon appeals to a broad cross section of the electorate but I don't think anyone can deny what Salmond has done for this country and I still believe the No vote could turn out to be his finest hour as he masterminds a resurgence of the SNP.  I think his decision to tell his story via the P&J also says a lot about him during the referendum he thanked the P&J, his local paper who reported fairly on the referendum unlike the main stream media across the UK.  I know there is a lot of high level stuff going on just now but life goes on, if it doesn't then the terrorists etc have won.

The SNP's weekly update - Nicola Sturgeon on placing a block on fracking, standing up to UKIP, and putting Ed Miliband straight on Home Rule - plus a CMON ON ANDY! for the AO final.

Don't agree.    It quickly becomes very boring.    It's no fun having a discussion with anyone who says whatever just for effect.   
ILA - I have no desire to argue with anyone - really.  However, I don't say things for any 'effect' so I'm afraid you have that completely wrong about me.  This is the internet, and I can see how you might think I'm doing that, but I'm not.  Hoping that's the record straight...

The Twitter exchange during Andy's semi-final prior to Thursdays First Ministers Questions was widely reported - but poor wee Willie Rennie appears to have been excluded!

I saw the exchange between the ladies during Andy's match.  Very nice to witness - good banter and much smiles between all.  Nice.  yes

Thanks Fiverings - I enjoyed that.  Well, it was going to be a hen do, so not surprised wee Willie wasn't invited!  Even more interesting though is what Clegg has to say about PMQT!
