Have your say

I know of “cybernats” etc only from items in the press or on radio so presumably those who are so offended/incensed by them are making an effort to access their outpourings.

In a recent edition of PM on Radio 4 UK a Mr Noon from the Yes campaign and a Labour lady (whose name I didn’t catch) were on.

Noon said they should both use this opportunity to call for a stop to vituperative comments.

The lady would have none of this and used her time to demand that Alex Salmond’s adviser be sacked.

What puzzles me about this latest stushie is that saying, even if mistakenly, that a Labour supporter is related to Pat Lally is regarded as a deadly insult by people in the Labour Party.

Has the former Glasgow lord provost become an un-person?
