From the Herald Diary, "SO, are our expensively-paid politicians at the Scottish Parliament coping with new technology? Well, what about the committee meeting this week when convener Trish Godman of the Labour Party declared: "I ask those who have mobile phones and blueberries to switch them off." This stirred the LibDems' Ross Finnie, who asked: "Blueberries?" Replied Trish: "BlackBerrys. Perhaps some of you have blueberries." Brambles?" continued Ross, having, we suspect, a bit of fun with the convener. "If you have brambles, or anything else, please switch them off," said Trish. But then it got all boring again, so we switched off. "

Mr Smith seems to recall that we have been here before.
