Having read a piece in Evening Express, it left me angry and thinking politicians are losing the plot (some/many might think they were aloof anyway).
Government minister Lorna Slater responded to criticism that she was not going to more than two things in a day.
This was at the much vaunted COP-26.
When collared about this, she said: “I can’t be expected to work 14 days straight. I need two full days off.”
Well, Lorna, firstly look for another job, and secondly, look at those working at hospitals/care homes/food banks and other key workers.
So many have had many months of double/triple shifts. Many of these will be on far less wages than “the minister”.
Is it little wonder that people/voters shake their heads in disbelief when stories like this come out?
Aye it’s a law for “them”and a law for rest of us. Shame, shame on you Lorna.

Raise your game, ref
Much rejoicing down Pittodrie way following the Dons gaining a draw at home against Rangers.
I watched the game on satellite television and, penalty aside, Alan McGregor didn’t have a save to make.
The Dons got a deserved penalty following a set-piece, and were then fortunate to see Scott Brown remain on the park following his childish applause seeing a fellow pro get sent off.
Neither of Ryan Kent’s bookings were anything like a yellow card and, frankly, Brown should have been sent off for a second yellow card following his playground-like behaviour.
Scottish refereeing matches the quality of the football in Scotland – both flawed products.
