Here’s some wee tips if you’re thinking of trying to have any sort of engagement with the new minister for mental health in Scottish Parliament, Jamie Hepburn MSP.
First you will have to cross the drawbridge of the Senior Parliamentary Assistant.
You may or may not be able to traverse this rope bridge. For you will be given two choices. Either the ministerial Email or the “other” one which has his name on it.
Which one to choose? That is the question. Are you local or are you national?
And even then when you get to the big wooden door you may find the drawbridge pulled up behind you and the moat coming to meet you. A watery end.
You can’t say you haven’t been warned!
