The Long Night of the Vole – and the approach of Carmichael Day in the Court of Session

albino_rodent_by_hiddenmovesThe Vole has had to be quiet recently. No matter what the temptations are, and they have been considerable, I have had to haud ma wheesht. It has not been easy;  even my sarcasm availed me not when I saw BroonPants telling people not to support Jezza Corbyn. The idea that anyone cares about the Great Economist’s views is just sweet. I mean, he was so good at saving Scottish Labour and just so brilliant at winning elections that he has just got to be right this time!

 Trouble is that we have had trouble in the burrow. The dear wife and bairn are both fine, but our great uncle Cedric is rather poorly and is needing our attention and has to be our priority at the moment- this mean that we have been away and having to scavenge for sclatero broth, sheep dung tea and all the other little necessities that we have to provide ourselves rather than trusting to the Vet.  So all this scurrying means that we have had to watch other folk being busy about the Big Day coming. Our team here in the islands is just fantastic, lots of passionate and committed people working very hard indeed because  the 7th of September getting close! Mr Carmichael’s lawyers will have to make his case for him before the judges on all the issues. We are looking forward to it with calm anticipation – oh and if you have a few beans to put in the pot – we would be very grateful.

      Sorry for not replying sooner Emily, we hope the streaming will take place but there are still issues that are running on – we are having to keep the fund open and putting a new drive behind it because this is not a normal case and costs seem to escalate

    I can tell you Jeremy Corbyn has in the past met religious fanatic and mass-murdering war criminal Tony Blair, but does not share his views. Mrs Vole says thank you as does little Cedric.
