This weeks Motherwell Times newspaper reports a rare election victory for the Scottish Socialist Party.
Third year pupils at the town's Our Lady's High School - coincidentally my own 'Alma Mater'- held a mock election involving all 5 of Scotland's political parties and the SSP team won.
The paper's report also carries a lovely colour photograph of Daniel McDermott, Louise Murray, Luke McMahon and Lucy McCarron holding an SSP banner reading 'Make Capitalism History'.
Readers of this blog will recall that I visited the school on February 24th and received a very warm welcome.
The school have attributed the SSP's success to my visit but I like to think it is much more significant than that, rather it is a sign of these historic times and of the victories to come for the Scottish Socialist Party.
