    I don’t have a lot of faith in Sturgeon’s claims of a Scottish independence ‘listening exercise’. I suspect that it is going to be very selective ‘listening’ to just the party faithful.

    I am remember complaining years ago about the number of cars that I saw off the road with nothing to indicate whether they had been there for days or recently happened and someone possibly inside (of course with the Police Service of Scotland both could be the case).

    Elsewhere it was normal to see a ‘POLICE AWARE’ sticker on the car. At least now it is more common to see some police incident tape or a cone but after the Police Service of Scotland blunder I might have expected them to have a policy of clearly marking accidents that had been dealt with.

    Also be very careful if they tell you to put the phone down then call them back, they could hold the line open – this is said to have been fixed on BT by reducing the time that the connection is held but I would still be very careful.
