May I take this opportunity to thank all of you for your comments - all 47 contributions to the posting about Labour making schoolboy errors (I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'll try better) on the first official day of the Glenrothes campaign.

I'm not publishing any of the comments because I'd have to sort out what was worth publishing from the stuff that was simply vitriolic.

I'll just say that if I think Kezia Dugdale should be criticised on my blog then I'm quite capable of doing it myself.

I'll also say that Ms Dugdale has retracted the allegation that Nicola Sturgeon was removed from a shopping centre in Glasgow:

The Sturgeon Affair during the Glasgow East by-election. My source is still absolutely adamant that it happened but I don't believe for a second that Nicola Sturgeon would take the trouble to email me if her side of events wasn't the truth.

I have a huge admiration for Nicola Sturgeon - take the politics out of it - she's a cracking role model for young women in Scotland.

If Kezia has been courageous enough to admit that she was wrong and that the Deputy First Minister is a better politician than Kezia alluded to then that admission and segued apology should be welcomed as the positive contributions they are.

Kezia has now given up her blog but I'm sure this has nothing to do with her admiration for Nicola Sturgeon which her boss Lord Foulkes as a fair minded man would no doubt have appreciated!

I don't think it is, I think she probably just wants to give it a wee break so that she can be quiet for a couple of months before being revealed as an SNP member.

We can at least give her that.
