Missing Margo

The sad passing of Margo ­MacDonald is a serious blow for Scottish politics.

She had at least the remnants of education, common sense, honesty, gravitas, humour, conviction and wit which seem to be so entirely lacking from the current crop off Scottish politicians.

Is it not about time that the main parties started choosing candidates of stature and worldly experience in whom the voters can have some confidence?
