The Future of Liberal Democracy...

Having savaged Stephen Nicol for being... well, rubbish, I thought I better offer some hope for his future. Former UK party leader (that is, before they kicked him out for having a bit of character) Charles Kennedy was this week elected rector of Glasgow University. He joins another former party leader (who was kicked out for having a bit of... age) Sir Menzies Campbell as a rector [edit - not rector, Chancellor - which I should've known having sat through a grad ceremony last year!, thanks to ASWAS for that] of one of Scotland's old universities - he's at St Andrews.

So is there a future for the most bland man in Scottish politics in this sphere? Time will only tell...

Ming Campbell is Chancellor of the University of St Andrews, not Rector. The Rector is a rather charming gentleman called Simon Pepper, who could be described as a green, if not a Green. He used to be Director of WWFScotland.

Oh, and St Andrews doesn't have a full stop to show the 'Saint' abbreviation. No idea why not.
