My sincere thanks to the Scottish Parliament for welcoming us here today in this magnificent building, in the homeland of Andrew Carnegie.

Dr. Robinson, thank you for your most generous remarks. It is especially humbling to hear these kind words from an individual of such great accomplishment, who has served not only her own country with distinction, but also the global cause of human rights.

WHEN it comes to winning derbies, not many can do it as well as the Aga Khan can.

Success for the Kieren Fallon-ridden winner wasn't without its hiccups, with the champion, his mount and the legions who had bet them into 5-6 favourite having to survive an anxious wait for the stewards to confirm the result.
