Above is the former First Minister of Scotland Dr Jack Wilson McConnell MSP. In an effort to avoid any misunderstanding, he's the one in the kilt. (Has anyone ever found out the name of the bloke in the bunnet?)
Shortly Mr McConnell will be sworn in as Lord McConnell of 'somewhere in the west'.
So Jack's finally be awarded his ermine robe and £300 a day attendance fee. They've been promised long enough. Will he leave the Scottish Parliament? (Lord) George Foulkes somehow manages to be an MSP and a member of the House of Lords so there is no reason why Jack couldn't follow in his footsteps.
