Up in Perth this afternoon for the Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) conference ...
... speaking at a fringe event on "Transport Options for Edinburgh" - 'quality not quantity!' audience; and an enjoyable debate after the informal presentations.
Talking of fringe events - there's an amusing write-up of such a meeting I participated in at the recent Labour Conference in Dundee --- you can find it here: click on the Dragon's Den event :-)
Hope springs eternal, indeed :-))
