Swinson on a roll

A reader asks if we can include another nugget of brilliance from Ms Swinson, this time aimed at the Secretary of State for Scotland

Jo Swinson (East Dunbartonshire) (LD): Given that there are 13,000 deaths each year as a result of smoking and many more thousands of people suffer illnesses as a result of the harmful effects of tobacco smoke, does the Secretary of State agree that the smoking ban in public places in Scotland will improve public health and that a healthier work force must therefore be good for the economy?

Mr. Darling: That is a very difficult question, but I think that the answer is yes.

Jo has clearly been taking too many tips from her leader on how to ask difficult questions.

Does the Secretary of State agree with me that bears **** in the woods?
