Retro analysis reveals that the hindsight tally rose by five last week in Hamilton, the second outing furth of the capital.

But, never on to conform, Douglas Osler, HMI's supremo, opened up a rival front, declaring he was never "a retrospective prophet". First time for everything, then?

It was left to Bill Morton, acting SQA boss, to sign off with a "retrospective wisdom".

With the retro look in fashion it must be farewell to hindsight.
