Political week on Twitter
All the week's top political tweets in one handy location.
The constitutional spot of bother between Westminster and Holyrood over the terms of the Scottish independence referendum dominated the week's headlines.

Ed Miliband increasingly has the air of a supply teacher about him.

Ed Miliband shouldn't feel bad. In September 2010 the entire Labour party accidentally misspelt "David".

And, in a rather unexpected turn of events, former Man U footballer Eric Cantona decided to turn his hand to politics. At least, we thought he was going to.
Well done King Eric Cantona for highlighting the awful housing situation facing the poor in France; not much different over here.

Eric Cantona would be the greatest prime minister of all time…. FACT!

Worst news of the day: Eric Cantona's 'presidential bid' was a PR stunt bit.ly/wEgyly

"Certainly take the advice of others but always, always be yourself." – Let's kick-off Friday with the legendary Eric Cantona, shall we?
