Watching Mhairi Black’s maiden speech in the House of  Commons, yesterday, I was bowled over by her in every way. She is a brilliant speaker, and I look forward to hearing more from her. She was elected before she had even finished her degree in Politics at Glasgow University, graduating this summer with First Class Honours. Degrees in Scotland are four years long. She’s quite something.

[edit] the internet is often great, but often gets stuff confused. while mooching about i found a tweet miscrediting my work, so, just to straighten things out, my name is Martha Lea! thanks for stopping by🙂

  1. OK, I shared your picture in a bit of a clumsy way with Mhairi and the Antique Typewriter Collectors group on Facebook. She says: “Thank you very much for your email. I can say with all honesty that that picture is definitely the coolest email I have received yet! Thanks again.”
