Fantastic story, reminds of the time sitting in Tinderbox (Summer 2004) behind Pauline McNeill (Glasgow Kelvin MSP) and Ann McKechin (at that time Glasgow Maryhill MP) at which Ann ever so loud and indiscretely was asking Pauline if she knew what Gorgeous George was thinking about doing? Was he after the new Glasgow Central seat she wanted to know? In her own words, "for my sins, I've been appointed Regional Election Co-ordinator for the Scottish MPs, and I'm just trying to sort out who is going where". Nothing to do with the fact that Gorgeous George could technically have challenged Ann for the Glasgow North seat. Pauline to her credit volunteered no information or at least was discreet enough not to shout it across the table.
