Char­ity jun­gle

The Herald - - POLITICS -

BRASS neck of the week award goes to failed celebrity and for­mer Scot­tish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale. The Loth­i­ans MSP yes­ter­day boasted she had do­nated £7,500 to char­ity as a re­sult of go­ing on re­al­ity TV to drink blended an­i­mal parts. But a third of that was the salary she got for be­ing an MSP while not ac­tu­ally be­ing an MSP, and the rest was a frac­tion of her £85,000 pack­age for three weeks in the sun. What did her spin doc­tor Alan Ro­den used to say about the gig? “Pro­mot­ing Labour val­ues.” Ob­vi­ously New Labour val­ues.
