I am now officially sick to death of hearing or reading journalists making a big thing out of Tavish Scott not mentioning Nick Clegg in his leader's speech to Scottish Conference on Friday. Apparently, according to Raymond Buchanan, Brian Taylor and Saturday's Courier, this means that Tavish is trying to distance himself from Nick and considers him an electoral liability.
That would be why Tavish gave Nick such a warm introduction on Saturday, then. And that wasn't cobbled together at the last minute as some PR stunt because of the press - it was in the agenda, printed weeks ago, and always had been planned that way.
The body language between the two of them was very positive. One thing I have learned over the years is that Tavish Scott is rubbish at faking it. What you see is exactly what you get with him.
I am fairly certain that there are issues on which the two of them disagree, but the signs were all of a very cordial relationship between the two leaders. To suggest otherwise is just mischief making.
