I agree with your correspondent's comments on the poor behaviour and personal name-calling of some in Holyrood (Lamont conduct was "disrespectful", Letters, November 4).
This reflects badly on our Parliament and the people concerned.
This ill-mannered, childish alternative to reasoned, logical debate should not be allowed by the Presiding Officer, who I understood was there to maintain order and proper behaviour.
