Fowl con­fes­sions of a bot­tom­less MP

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - News -

BE­FORE be­com­ing politi­cians, some of our MPs had jobs in the real world. For the SNP’s Glas­gow East MP David Lin­den, this in­volved two years as the Air­drie FC mas­cot (pic­tured). ‘I dressed up as a big chicken and was known as Rock the Cock,’ he con­fessed last week. He got the job be­cause the bot­tom half of the cos­tume was miss­ing ‘and I was this scrawny, skinny guy from the East End of Glas­gow so my own chicken legs fit­ted in just nicely’. How he got a job as an MP is less clear, but his suc­ces­sor, pic­tured, is now more de­cently clad.
