News of a sad nature

Sad to hear from a couple of sources both in Parliament and out with that the SNP's Glasgow MSP Bashir Ahmad, the oldest of the SNP MSPs, has died. Needless to say, there is no confirmation from MSM sources at the moment, only word of mouth and a couple of blogs.

I have to say, I am quite sad to hear this news. I can't say that I knew the man at all really, but he always had a word for me in passing when I worked in the Parliament. Others will pay tribute to his trailblazing (first MSP from his background & faith) I will just say what a nice guy he was, and that I hope he has found peace.

I'm quite happy - indeed, eager - to engage in debate with others when the topic provides opportunity to do so. I like knowing who I'm debating with and I'm fed up with some abusive anonymous comments so I've disabled those comments for awhile. If you want to comment, log in - it only takes a minute.
