"The initial result showed no votes for the SNP. An SNP candidate stopped the returning officer on the way to announce the result and managed to argue him into re-examining the data.

"Saving the Accident and Emergency Units of the Ayr and Monklands Hospitals is but one example where the SNP remained determined to deliver on its promises in spite of the apparent obstacles.

"With 68% of the UK catch, one sixth of the EU’s 65,000 kilometres of coastline, and the largest fishing zone of any single EU country, it is ludicrous that Scotland takes a back seat role when decisions which directly affect its fishing communities are being made. The SNP will heighten Scotland’s profile on the international arena and ensure that it plays a significant role in EU negotiations, particularly those on fisheries." - Acting as a good government should do

"Almondbank is a state-of-the-art, world-class centre of excellence in helicopter repair and it seems insane to be looking to hive off such an amazing resource. By selling to a Canadian company, the MoD will be taking the bizarre step of exporting control of these important jobs and crucial technologies to a Canadian company." - Defence repair site sale 'insane'

"It is submitted that the Lockerbie case demonstrates just how necessary it is, if public confidence is to be maintained, for the Scottish Executive to institute a high-powered independent investigation into all three aspects - investigation, prosecution and adjudication - of the Scottish criminal justice system, as has already been called for by, among others, Dr Jim Swire, Tam Dalyell and Professor Hans Koechler, the UN observer at the Lockerbie trial." - Robert Black, QC, FRSE, Professor Emeritus of Scots Law at the University of Edinburgh. - The fairy story of the Crown's independence
