    Hi John – the new twitter activity round-up feature is a great idea. I’m sure it must have done the twitter rounds but can I use this space to mention a story that had completely passed me by but appeared recently in the Herod?

    I assumed it must have been a youthful indiscretion but noted that the gent was 38yrs of age at the time. Oh well – I daresay he had his reasons.

    Probably did him some good when it came to Davidson making the candidate selection (one can imagine the thought process in action “I say, what? – This chap should be keen as mustard on the OBFA issue. He’s the chappie for jolly old us – what?” Link and snippet below:
