Bit of an ego boost

Lets make it quite clear, I do not blog for positions on tables or for awards or nominations thereto, I blog because I enjoy it, it gets things off my chest and because I'm vain enough to think that my views and opinions are worth sharing.

However I must admit to being a bit chuffed to discover that this blog has been listed on the other Iain Dale's list of Top 50 Lib Dem blogs at number 32 and also on his list of Top 40 Scottish blogs at number 26. This despite the fact that I've barely been blogging for the past few months.

Only two fellow Scottish Lib Dem bloggers beat me in both the Scottish and Lib Dem ranks - Stephen Glenn who blogs in West Lothian and Councillor Fraser McPherson from Dundee. Well done both.

Tavish Scott MSP Elected Scottish Lib Dem leader

The result of the Scottish Liberal Democrats leadership election has just been announced.
On a turnout of 61% of members the result is as follows:

Tavish Scott 1450 (59%)
Ross Finnie 568 (21.3%)
Mike Rumbles 439 (17.9)%

It will be interesting to see what direction the party now takes.

Mobile posted missing these last 8 days

My mobile phone seems to have gone walkabout as the last time I can remember having it was last Thursday so apologies if you've phoned in that time, I'm not ignoring you just not known that you've called.

Should you need to phone me for any reason then please try the house or office. I shall publish a post when I either find the damned thing or bite the bullet and buy a new one. I'm positive it's in the house somewhere but just can't find it. it's not even worth my while trying to phone it as it's set to vibrate rather than ring and the battery will have run down by now too.

Apologies for the lack of posting recently, hopefully I'll be back in full rant mode by early next week.
