More FM bluster ...

Watched FMQ's (in retrospect on the computer!) again this week ... not only was the First Minister up to his usual bluster and failure to give a straight answer - he even started actually 'asking questions' of some of the Opposition Group Leaders?

... not sure that's quite what was envisaged by those who wrote the Standing Orders for the Scottish Parliament? I'm sure they thought FMQ's was supposed to be about the Legislature holding the Government to account??

So ... following yet another half-hour of complete bluster and the total avoidance of giving answers to serious questions ... I am completely unsurprised at developments later this afternoon after FMQ's had finished.

This motion seems to have brought things to a head ... but personally, I think the Presiding Officer is secretly reading this blog ;-)
