Spin­ner caught out by a Game of Clones

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - Comment -

WHEN glam­orous Game of Thrones star Rose Les­lie, left, backed the Bet­ter To­gether cam­paign, one of the Union­ist spin­ners was so en­am­oured of the Scots ac­tress that a long ex­change of emails en­sued. It has now sadly emerged that all along the lovelorn Lothario was com­mu­ni­cat­ing with a fake ac­count set up by mis­chievous col­leagues, un­til cam­paign bosses put an end to the cruel de­cep­tion. WHEN Ni­cola Stur­geon de­nounced Jeremy Cor­byn’s Brexit fight­back as ‘pa­thetic’, a de­lighted James Cor­den noted: ‘Stur­geon takes no s***.’ So will the TV show pre­sen­ter now ask her to do a Car­pool Karaoke, won­ders for­mer SNP Min­is­ter Richard Lochhead. Given the kick­ing the SNP leader gave Mr Cor­byn, she could sing These Boots Are Made For Walkin’. MISS Stur­geon was less suc­cess­ful in fac­ing down calls for her to de­nounce her back-bench MSP John Ma­son for call­ing IRA ter­ror­ists ‘free­dom fight­ers’. And when she had to apol­o­gise to the fam­i­lies of three Scot­tish IRA vic­tims, Tory MSP Adam Tomkins could not help gloat­ing. In an EU de­bate at Holy­rood he out­lined Theresa May’s Brexit plans: ‘She wants to con­tinue the UK’s co-op­er­a­tion with our Euro­pean part­ners in the fight against crime and free­dom fight­ers – sorry, in the fight against crime and ter­ror­ism.’
