In a week which saw fractious infighting and criticisms within the independence camp Lesley stresses the need for inclusion and tolerance and highlights the pitfalls of our tendency towards tribalism.
I question whether anyone outside of the online bubble either knows or cares about these disputes.
Lesley uses the very different approaches between the Scottish and English prison systems to highlight the progressive nature, across party political divides, of Scottish society.
And in the midst of these pleas for peace,love and understanding I, once again, deny being a hippy. Doth I protest too much?
