Chris Harvie MSP seems to have caused a bit of a stooshie over the last 24-hours with his comments about Lockerbie and Carlisle.
Personally, I'm sympathetic to his plight - he has apologised very promptly for any offence caused - and many of his colleagues have quickly jumped to his defence, whilst acknowledging that the words used weren't perhaps the 'most' appropriate :-(
That should be the end of it.
... tell you what though, I'll be waiting for an an equally gracious attitude when next (it will happen!) an Opposition MSP says something ever-so-slightly outrageous.
