Letter: Peer group

Your report (19 August), that Lord George Foulkes has decided to ban himself from possible re-election as an MSP in May, brought tears to my eyes. Tears of laughter.

Does his "growing group of Labour peers" opposed to the UK coalition government still include a certain Lord Watson? He was obliged to concentrate his talents in the Lordly House and hasn't been missed at Holyrood since.
