Everything you wanted to know about Tavish Scott...

There is a substantial profile of the new leader of the Scottish Lib Dems in the Sunday Times:

it is interesting that the only thing for which Tavish Scott, the newly elected leader of the Scottish Lib Dems, is renowned is bringing a troupe of “Vikings” from his native Shetland to the opening of Parliament last year.

“They came in full Viking regalia,” he says, “gave three cheers for the Queen as they walked past the box, which you’re not meant to do, found a buffet, scoffed the lot and drank the bar dry.”

The so-called Jarl Squad presented the presiding officer with a Jarl Squad tie, and he’s clearly proud of them. Have the Liberal Democrats finally found somebody with a bit of spunk?

Time will tell.

Tav is the only person I know who has (or admits to having) eaten a Seagulls egg! He claims it was quite fishy and something he used to do while tending the family farm stock on outlying islands.
