|The Early Days of a Better Nation|

Anyone who is interested in how the election is going should check out the innovative, left-leaning, pro-independence site YouScotland. One of its founders, Alan Smart, has an engaging introductory piece on his video blog at YouTube's new political channel, CitizenTube.
Personally, I'm going to vote Labour in the constituency poll as (futilely as) usual, but I can't help relishing the prospect of Labour getting a drubbing. For one reason, watch First Minister Jack McConnell demonstrate his grasp of his brief. (Besides, he regards the smoking ban as his proudest achievement. His other achievements are pilloried on the hilarious, if hardly fair, video The Best Wee Numpty in the World). For another, there's the prospect of never seeing Justice Minister Cathie Jamieson's stupid, sour face on television again.
