A Blast from the Past - Taking it Literally

I have been meaning to do this for ages, but Jeffs rallying call inspired me to revisit it.

A paltry 6 months ago, WWF (the panda lovers, not the wrestlers) held an earth hour which meant that people, if they cared about our dear circle of a world, were to turn off all their lights (and electricity if they were really committed).

The fact that this occurred during a vital world cup qualifier between Scotland and Holland did not deter dozens of MSPs from signing their support. Sadly for them, the crafty people at the WWF took their names and added them to a list of organisations and people who had effectively signed up to earth hour. The question is, how many of those MSPs can honestly say that between 8.30 and 9.30 on the 28th March they switched off their lights? We would be angry if mentioned business shut as Whyte and Mackay and Scottish Power Reneged on their green credentials, so step forward those listed MSPs (for some reason blogger will not let me paste - but they include Wendy Alexander, Rebel Malcolm Chisolm, Blogger Jamie Hepburn, Signing Sensation Stuart McMillan, and Sleepy Sir Jamie Mcgrigor) and tell us - were you really in the dark on that fateful night, or did you just lie as the Tabloids would lead us to believe you do every day?

Why don't you ask Stuart McMillan seeing as you work for him?

as the author, i can say without flinching that your sentence is not true, i do not work for any of the MSPs listed, nor any MSP at all. No editor of CHC is employed by an MSP. your source?
