As things stand

Still no PO candidate, and it looks as though the MSPs will be sworn in tomorrow, but the sitting will be suspended until next week, when, hopefully, a replacement for George Reid will be chosen.

Rumours abound that Margo MacDonald will come in as a 'holding' PO. for a year. No one's really sure what to make of this, but Labour don't want to do it, and want the new Presiding Officer to come from one of the smaller parties. The Tories seem to be lining up to reject the job, claiming that it's Labour's turn.

Oh, and the Greens asked the LibDems if they'd like to join the Coalition. The LibDems have said no.

The Lib Dems don't want to get 'icky nationalist smell' on them.
