Dealing from the bottom of the pack

Incoming cabinet MSPs Alex Neil, Roseanna Cunningham and Keith Brown are more akin to the flat earth society of the SNP, rather than the fresh faced newbies normally associated with the "New Talent" tag used by Mr Salmond today to describe them.

Talk about spin...

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer? As some of the most established MSPs in the SNP Mike Russell (moving from Environment to Culture with special responsibility for the Constitution) and Roseanna Cunningham even contested the leadership of the party whilst Alex Neil is an outspoken and impressive politician with a mind of his own.

Should be interesting though...

  2. Don't know much about Keith Brown but the other two are big hitters and I'm sure it was part of a plan to bring them in half way through the term.

    Nothing wrong with the proven old stagers getting a wee shot polaris :)

  3. I agree Subrosa - I think they were left out in the cold just to whet their appetites.

  4. I note you have some hattips to tractorstats blog. His blog seems to have been removed. It made me back-up my blog. The censoring of the interweb may have begun...

  5. Hi Clunking, yeah I've backed up mine too, can never be too paranoid. I posted on Obnoxio's thread about tractorstats, I've emailed him and making other enquiries - hope this is not anything too sinister.

  6. I think it's time the SNP ratcheted up the conversation re: independence. They've been far too busy demonstrating their "administrative competence". Time to get real.

  7. Scunnert - they now have a serious minister with specific responsibility for the Constitution. The National Conversation has to be started properly - it will be the making or demise of the SNP.
