My wee mole has been very quiet recently, almost avoiding me as the SNP went through their re-selection process. I think they were nearly caught out on one occasion and so have since been very cautious.
Still, their description of SNP discipline is very reminiscent of ours, regular meetings, a strong whip and party line held, although in their case it is held at all costs, for the party is all. Mind you they are led by a former Labour Party whip who is on his third, (or is it fourth party?), so no surprises there.
Its all a far cry from the Libdem group experience whose office bearers, my mole informs me somewhat scathingly, have not met for months and whose group meetings are more a gathering of anarchists. But given they are wreaking anarchy across the city as they are led by their junior partner into more and more playground style politics, an attribute matched only by their indecision, such descriptions would fit the bill
