COLUMN BY BILL LECKIE OF THE SCOTTISH SUN

At last month’s General Election, 68.1 per cent of the Scottish electorate turned out. Of that 68.1 per cent, 45 per cent voted Nat.
That’s just over 30 per cent of the total electorate. Or 1,242,084 out of 4,053,140.

LET US TRAVEL FREE WITH OUR PETS

As a pensioner, I can’t afford to put my dogs into kennels or hire a dog sitter when I go away. And as my dogs are getting older I want to spend all the time I can with them.
