Immitation is the highest form of flattery....apparently

When you copy Jamie Hepburn you sink to new depths but that didn't stop SNP MSP Bill Kidd lodging virtually the same motion as his Central Scotland colleague had previously lodged.

*S3M-3049 Bill Kidd: Scottish Youth Parliament Website—That the Parliament congratulates the Scottish Youth Parliament on the establishment of the new website,, which now includes a Member of the Scottish Youth Parliament (MSYP) finder feature, making it easier for young people to communicate the issues that are important to them to their MSYPs and recognises the valuable contribution that MSYPs make to their local communities and youth politics across Scotland.

S3M-03046 Jamie Hepburn (Central Scotland) (SNP): That the Parliament welcomes the relaunch of the Scottish Youth Parliament's website; notes that improved features include a redesign and a member of the Scottish Youth Parliament (MSYP) finder facility aimed at improving links between young people, MSPs and MSYPs; believes that the Youth Parliament continues to play an important role in representing the views of young people in Scotland, and encourages all MSPs, and the wider public, to make use of the new website.

How much can you possibly congratulate a Parliament that spawned John Loughton?

What does that mean exactly?

This website seems to get snider by the day!

I think it's fairly obvious what it means.

Sorry to be pedantic but I'm going to go ahead and assume that are trying to spell 'imitation'?


Also, pedantic again, but ellipses indicating a pause in speech should only ever comprise three dots. There should only ever be a total of four dots if the ellipsis is placed at the end of the sentence and is followed by a full stop - for example, when writing speech and indicating a drift into silence.


Again, sorry to be pedantic....
