Today's 'Election Diary' in The Herald refers to Saturday's visit to Hamilton at the invitation of a good friend and supporter, Christine McKelvie MSP:
THE SNP had a good weekend in Hamilton, enlisting the history enthusiasts of Strathleven Artizans to dress up as Robert the Bruce and the Black Douglas. Normally, such re-enactments are accompanied by the swinging of claymores, but this was vetoed by the polis. “Maybe in case the locals joined in and won,” deadpans one Nat.
Is it significant that on the arrival of the Artizans, New Labour supporters packed up their leaflets and quickly decamped?
