So a few miscellaneous things. Firstly, I have two new constituency previews in The National, this time about constituencies either wholly or partly in West Lothian - Livingston and Linlithgow & East Falkirk.
Secondly, I was asked to comment about Alex Salmond for an article on the Al Jazeera website by Alasdair Soussi. I did my best to put the situation in its correct perspective. You can read it HERE.
Finally, and on the same topic, could I please ask again that people in the comments section of this blog avoid any discussion of the details of the Alex Salmond trial. Obviously I'm not a legal expert, but as I understand it, all speculation about the facts of the case is strictly forbidden. So I'm having to be ruthless and delete comments of that sort when I see them.
