HUMZA Yousaf, the man who would be Scotland's foreign secretary if the independence referendum goes the way the SNP wants, is nothing if not ambitious.

Mr Yousaf, currently Minister for External Affairs and International Development, says an SNP government after the referendum would make Scotland a "world leader in international development".
He said: "The aim should be, when independence comes, hopefully if it does come in 2014 - we would essentially go from having a budget as we have now of £9 million, modest, to a budget of hundreds of millions."
Mr Yousaf further revealed to The JT, that, after having disbursed a, at the moment completely notional, sum of several 100m pounds, Alex Salmond would ascend to heaven accompanied by angles blowing trumpets to sit at the right hand of the Heavenly Father for all eternity.
