Margo MacDonald dies
More details here.
Margo was a longtime local resident in the Grange area and my thoughts are with Jim Sillars, her husband. . . and her children and grandchildren.
She was her own person - a quality all too rare in politics. Her high profile enabled her to survive and, indeed, remain an influence in Scottish politics after leaving her party.
