The ups and downs of life as an MSP

Following eleven hours of Brexit debate, 231 amendments and one birthday celebration, Bruce Crawford jumped for joy and bounced into the weekend.

Twitter celebrated both Jamie Greene’s and James Dornan’s birthdays this week. The latter’s youthful appearance was questioned by fellow MSP John Mason to which James Dornan hailed himself as the 21st century’s Dorian Gray.
