I was delighted to be invited, for the second year running, to the Royal High Primary to join the P7s for a discussion as part of their topic 'Who Represents Us?'.
We had a great discussion about the role of an MP as part of their democracy project.
Their questions kept me on my toes with everything from my favourite football team to trident, public speaking and if there was anyone in the SNP I didn't like (of course, there isn't).
And they have now convinced me to join Instagram - my username is tommysheppardsnp if you want to follow me!
The wait is nearly over. By next week the Tory party will have a new leader. And then they will foist him on the country at large. With most of the votes cast it seems that the clown prince is unstoppable. Barring a miracle Boris Johnson will be our next Prime Minister.
And then what?
