Quote of the day

The dear leader (Fathead Eck, for it is he), cited in The Scotsman:
"All I would say to Lord Hope is that I probably know a wee bit about the legal system and he probably knows a wee bit about politics, but politics and the law intertwine and the political consequences of Lord Hope's judgments are extreme, and when the citizens of Scotland understandably vent their fury about the prospect of some of the vilest people on the planet getting lots of money off the public purse, they don't go chapping at Lord Hope's door, they ask their parliament what they are doing about it."
Silly boy. Never a good idea for a politician to attack a judge, least of all one as distinguished as Lord Hope, a man totally immersed in the Scottish legal system. One day, he'll regret it.
