Pigs are squealing
The two sows and piglets are are a bit annoyed this morning - their breakfast is late. I'm waiting for the feed lorry to turn up, hopefully, at 7:30 as I have run out. As they squeal roud the trough I'm reminded of a story in the news...
One of Scotland's leading lawyers has failed in an attempt to sue Edinburgh City Council for £50,000 after he slipped on an icy pavement.
Gordon Jackson QC, who is also a Labour MSP,.(£48,000 + perks).Mr Jackson was criticised last December for taking a directorship at Kilmarnock Football Club.
Scottish National Party MSP Nicola Sturgeon accused Mr Jackson of showing "contempt" for his constituents in Glasgow Govan by making another commitment outside Holyrood.
He was, at the time, the only MSP not to have spoken in a Holyrood debate since the May elections.
When elected as an MSP, Mr Jackson came under fire when he said he would be continuing his legal work.(£243,000)
