Tales from last week’s elections continue to filter back to the Scrapbook office – with the most amusing being associated with grim defeat.
In the Scottish Highlands the SNP’s David Stewart, who last year won the Scottish Councillor of the Year award for his campaign to save RAF Lossiemouth jet base from closure, was thanked for his tireless efforts by being unceremoniously dumped by the voters of Heldon and Laich ward.
Regional newspaper The Northern Scot reported:
“Mr Stewart was too emotional to speak afterwards.”
But he didn’t seem to have any trouble articulating his views to his party colleague and Moray MP Angus Robertson – at whom he threw his rosette while yelling:
“This is all your fault!”
We trust Mr Robertson managed to escape the pointy end of the safety pin.
