Bad news for Foulkes...

TB is never normally one to agree with anything that the SNP say but one of their bloggers asks an
interesting question
- what is the point of George Foulkes? Foulkes drains the taxpayer of thousands of pounds every year in rather
dubious circumstances
and in return all he seems to do is ask pretty pointless questions in Holyrood and make crap YouTube
. This doesn't bode well for his bid to take the esteemed position of Rector of Edinburgh University. TB can't remember anyone asking what the point of Churchill, Lloyd George or Gladstone was!

No other candidates are yet to declare in the race, but TB happens to know of one and will reveal their identity in the new year... Let's just say it's going to be an entertaining race.

Foulkes talks nonsense...

Edinburgh University Rector candidate Lord Foulkes put up an embarrassing performance on Radio 4
this morning.
It seems he had drawn the short straw and is the last man on earth defending his old friend the Speaker. Foulkes even dared to suggest this could have been a national security issue. David Davis destroys him with some great slap downs.

Would be very interesting if these two did end up running against each other for Rector. 

Foulkes: "We're being friendly to each other" 
DD: "Relatively so..."

Hustings would be fantastic.
