Weighing up the vote
IT was once said that they weighed the Labour votes in Glasgow rather than counted them. Now it seems they weigh the voters. Tory MSP Jamie Greene says: ‘Mate walked into polling station and was weighed. Confused. Voted. Left. Turns out WeightWatchers using the hall next door.’ COULD Iain McGill be the unluckiest Tory in Scotland? Last year he drew the short straw after a dead heat in the race for a Holyrood list seat. Last week he failed to get elected as MP for Edinburgh North and Leith – and missed out on being substituted into Holyrood or Brussels as Miles Briggs MSP and Ian Duncan MEP narrowly failed to win Westminster seats.
