They say a week in politics is a long time, and they're right.
In the space of a week, the Westminster government has gone from trouble to elation, and ironically both are with defence and foreign affairs. Liam Fox finally went, and lo and behold, Gaddafi has been killed, thus justifying Cameron's policy towards Libya.
Libya, it seems, is a jinx for the SNP. They release Megrahi, sparking a debate that simply will not end, with Megrahi still living, and ironically the death of Gaddafi takes all the media attention AWAY from the SNP, just at the time when it would be most useful, as their conference starts.
I'm just waiting for the conspiracy theories to start..........
