What's Pete playing at? Record readers.
IT'S a most curious turn of events to find that someone who has so often stood in the House of Commons as the angriest man in Scotland, ranting about the UK Government and all that it stands for, now suddenly proposes himself as the custodian of all that is good at Westminster.
SNP MP Pete Wishart's bid to be the next Speaker of the House of Commons truly is a breathtaking example of just how far self-delusion can take you.
At least he can claim to have momentarily united the two sides of the independence debate, as all look on with incredulity at this weirdest example of political ambition.
