20 years later
It is difficult to believe that the Scottish Parliament was only re-convened 20 years ago.
20 years this coming Sunday, to be precise, but the elections were held 20 years ago today.
So what else could I blip but the certificate (slightly tattered and frayed) from that day from the South of Scotland count, which confirmed that I would be in the Assembly Hall in Edinburgh when the Parliament first met after a 292 year adjournment ?
And despite losing my seat in 2003, I came back in 2007 , successfully transferred from the regional list in the South to the Argyll & Bute Constituency in 2011 and am still fortunate enough to be working there for my constituents and my country .
