Tory’s spin ma­chine

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - Comment -

AB­SENT from the con­fer­ence dur­ing Mrs May’s ill-fated speech was Ber­wick­shire, Roxburgh and Selkirk MP John La­mont, tak­ing de­liv­ery of a new wash­ing ma­chine at his London flat. In pol­i­tics to­day, it seems spin is all-im­por­tant. DIS­AS­TER-PRONE West­ern Isles Na­tion­al­ist MP An­gus MacNeil an­nounced on Twit­ter last week that he is ‘try­ing to train a sheep­dog... but he’s do­ing a line in bur­glary’. He ap­pended a video of said sheep­dog open­ing a door. It raised a smile from de­posed SNP Banff and Buchan MP Eilidh White­ford, who re­sponded: ‘You have no idea how funny I find the idea of you try­ing to herd any­thing!’
