Presentation is everything, until it's not...

Minister Keith Brown was called upon to issue his annual warning yesterday on the need to prepare for winter. Keith's press officer obviously thought it would be great if Keith deliver his homily while dressed AS IF IT WERE COLD! See what they did there? No, me neither.
 It wouldn't surprise me to hear that Keith needed treatment for heat exhaustion on what was a pretty balmy Edinburgh day.
 Using the logic that presentation influences the reception of the message, we may look forward to Keith warning of a hot summer ahead, standing in a freezing March gale, wearing bermudas oot of Primark,, sun block and a sombrero.


"Naw, really ah'm dead cold staunin' here, nae guising..."

No, honestly I;'m fine, I've just got something in my eye...

Watched the documentary on Nic Jones the other night. If you know his back story you'll now why he's uniquely qualified to gently instruct the rest of us on the absolute necessity to try and live in the now.
 I don't know what is is, but I've got this terrible lump in my throat at the moment...

And lo...

it came to pass, thanks to the chimpanzees that run the captions software on Reporting Scotland, BBC Scotland's leaking tugboat news show, that Roy Hodgson was transformed into a beautiful stained-glass window... Give me an amen.
