Ming: I should have been Ming

The latest in the Let Ming be Ming debate comes from the great man himself.

The Guardian reports Sir Menzies Campbell's appearance at the Scottish parliament's "Festival of Politics":
When asked why he had spent so much of the first six months of his leadership on the back foot, he explained: "I took too much advice from sympathetic people, people who thought they understood."

By contrast, he claimed he was now listening to himself, saying: "When you are with lots of people with the best possible intentions who offer you advice, the skill is to realise the extent to which you must rely on your own judgment and have the confidence to do so.
