Make up your mind

Alex Salmond is standing for the Holyrood elections next year, despite being a Westminster MP. He really should make up his mind what he wants to be - a big fish in a little murky pond, or a little fish in a big pond. His continual flip-flopping about does nothing to help his Party or his own reputation. Even more importantly, he is clearly blase about the needs of his constituents - seeing them as a means to a more successful end. Someone in the SNP should really sit him down and talk to him about this. There is sometimes a positive need for men in grey suits.

Let this be a warning to Phil Gallie who is considering stepping down from Holyrood to concentrate on a campaign for Europe. There comes a time in everyone's political career when they have to accept it has either come to its natural end and its time to go away quietly, or it has settled nicely in one particular area and its just vanity that prompts a continual wish to keep changing direction.
