I wonder for how long. It’s only been seven years since I came by the opportunity to follow Scottish politics, and during that time the post was held by Wendy Alexander, Iain Gray, Johann Lamont and Jim Murphy (plus the acting leaders: Anas Sarwas and Iain Gray again). Makes one less ashamed of using exactly the same title for the post as everybody else . . .
