The "nationalist."

So, former Labour First Minister Henry "muddle not a fiddle" McLeish, who resigned after submitting erroneous expenses claims whilst a Westminster Member of Parliament, and who once described himself as a "small 'n' Nationalist," has accepted a second appointment from SNP First Minister, Alex Salmond.

"Former first minister Henry McLeish has accepted a second post from the new SNP government, overseeing the way courts handle a change in sentencing policy having previously agreed to serve as a member of the broadcasting commission that is looking at the way the industry is operating."

Mr McLeish seems to be doing better than most out of the election of the new SNP administration, certainly better than he did under the last regime of Jack McConnell, where he seemed to have been viewed as more of an embarrassment than he was an asset.
