    John,

    You so effective in this area that you should be incorporated into the non existant SNP Rebuttal Taskforce.

    Then again, you would be soon lost in the swamp of the SNP’s self serving swamp of Vipers and Hobgolins

    M. Le Panda – it must be that ‘stream’ of consciousness that is resulting in so many swamps! – Brilliant news about these 9 QPIs being met by NHS Scotland – So much fantastic work going on in NHS Scotland that the ‘Scottish’ msm simply ignore.

      Thanks, on a teacher’s pension, so free. A bit annoying for the younger ones – contribute to Wings or Indy Live or Scot goes Pop or Grouse Beater or…?
