Douglas Alexander apology

BBC Online's Scottish Politics page carries news of former Scottish Secretary Douglas Alexander's apology following publication yesterday of the Gould Report into May's elections fiasco. Interesting that Tory Leader David Cameron also chose to lead on this at Prime Minister's Questions today, following an impressive performance by Shadow Scottish Secretary David Mundell in the Commons yesterday.

Also taking some flak is Sam Younger of the Electoral Commission. Younger - a cousin of the late former Scottish Secretary George Younger - has promised to 'learn the lessons' of Gould's findings. Today's Scotsman has a full account of the fall-out from yesterday's events.
