NA­TION­AL­IST

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - Royal Exclusive -

John Ma­son’s propen­sity for the odd gaffe – such as call­ing IRA ter­ror­ists ‘free­dom fight­ers’ – has earned him the nick­name Rocket Man at Holy­rood. So the Glas­gow Shet­tle­ston MSP was de­lighted last week when Moroc­can par­lia­ment del­e­gates told him he looked like El­ton John. This could cause more prob­lems for Orkney Lib Dem Liam McArthur, who ad­mits he still doesn’t know all the names of fel­low MSPs and keeps dash­ing back to his of­fice to check.
