Bottom line

  • Comment

Thanks to the Scotsman on Sunday for unearthing the latest scandal to hit the Scottish parliament building. The sit-in bay windows, designed to give MSPs a place for quiet contemplation, may not be wide enough to accommodate the bigger-bottomed. While half of the seats are a generous metre wide, the rest are 'a buttock-clenching 40 cms'. Former SNP MSP Margo MacDonald - self confessed bigbottom and now an independent MSP for the Lothians - has come up with a sensible solution, which should avoid the need for costly rebuilding: 'I have got a big bottom so I would expect a big one. MSPs with big bottoms should get first choice.'
