Came home from ten days away to find a personal note on a letter from a well-known politician who just may have been mentioned in the last entry or two.......
It said: "came across your blog the other day. It was a bit spooky reading it so soon after our conversation in your garden, but it was very good".
On opening the letter, I hadn't reckoned on the power of Google Alert and I ran back to see what I had written :::::phew::::: I posted something honest and not unkind; attempting to live out what I believe (don't always manage this to perfection!). I only exaggerated slightly when I said "Lynn cross-examines famous politician". I didn't really do any Donald Findlay style cross-examining (don't know the words of his songs!)
Nicola Sturgeon will face much tougher opponents than me asking a few questions, and as a law grad, she is well able to argue her party's case. I remember going to a hustings meeting in Govan, at the Pearce Institute, in, I think, 1997 (?) and had never heard such a bunch of mumblers as Sarwar and his attendants; did Labour no favours at all. A very young Nicola Sturgeon spoke superbly (I think we're the same age). However, I placed a lot of hope in TB in those days.
And so.....two weeks to the election. I agree with Stuart here on the Scottish Christian Party; it's not for me.
PS Nicola, if you're reading this, please have a look at Still Small Voices.
