This one passed me by at the time, but there’s been another positive comment for Willie Rennie’s performance as Liberal Democrat leader in Holyrood, this time from Scott MacNab, a Scotsman journalist writing on The Steamie.
Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has been rattlin’ the cages at Holyrood since he took over the reins of the party in the immediate aftermath of their election disaster.
Rennie has invariably led the criticism of the most powerful government since devolution, including over the extraordinary onslaught against the UK Supreme Court, the SNP splits over gay marriage and even Mr Salmond’s moves to distance Scotland from last week’s English riots.
It appears to have got under the First Minister’s skin, prompting an open SNP campaign to recruit disgruntled Lib Dems to turn Nat.
Coupled with all of these and last week’s praise from Alan Cochrane, not an easy man for a Liberal Democrat to impress, it’s clear that our leader has made a very positive impact in three short months since he became leader.
