About the Blog

Deriving its name from the central lobby area within the Scottish Parliament, the Garden Lobby blog provides commentary and insights on Scottish politics and public affairs.

The blog’s remit is to explore Scotland’s long and short term political landscape through analysing the workings of and issues facing the Scottish Government, Holyrood, Scotland’s political parties and Westminster.

The Garden Lobby blog is administrated by Grayling Scotland’s team of public affairs consultants. Opinions expressed on this blog are those of its individual contributors and do not necessarily reflect the view of our employer or its clients. The editorial team reserves the right to moderate, edit, publish or remove comments and content at their discretion.
