Margaret Ewing

Margaret Ewing, the SNP MSP, has died. I feel really quite saddened by that, it is always sad when a true fighter for their country dies.

I met her once when I was doing a school newspaper and she was gracious and funny in the interview she gave. She gave me the time she would give a proper journalist, with no obvious benefit to her.

Scotland has lost a true champion.

Update: Typical of the SNP though - the Tories have a nice comment from Annabel Goldie, whereas the SNP comment has been "she had been ill for some time". Oh well then. That's ok then.
