Holyrood’s New Year Political Pledges

In true d’Hondt spirit, we offer four resolutions for First Minister Nicola Sturgeon; three for the Conservatives’ Ruth Davidson; two for Kezia Dugdale of Labour; and one each for the Greens’ joint leadership of Patrick Harvie and Maggie Chapman and for Willie Rennie of the LibDems.

To all of them, we wish a Happy New Year. Our polity is important. Disengagement and cynicism serves none of us.
