What arrived in this morning’s post but a self-promotional prospectus from local MSP, Michael Russell.
Such exercises are necessary in bad times. And this does lighten the mood.
In the parallel universe politicians inhabit, Mr Russell:
- promotes ‘collaborative working’. The two felled SNP council leaders will one day testify warmly to his own Quasar-powered performance in this respect? This morning’s puff actually says: ‘collaborative working – one of the things Argyll does best’. Not universally.
- tells us he is ‘pressing’ mobile phone companies. Bad news for the share value of Vodaphone, Orange, O2 etc – given the outcome of his persistent ‘pressing’ of his local party.
- worships at the feet of the Scottish Ferries Review – did he read the same document everyone else read or are there ‘platinum’ versions for SNP MSPs?
- and presents the Glen Croe ‘relief’ road [comic relief perhaps] as the second coming of the Scottish Government.
Oh – and he is ‘bracing for the bedroom tax’. No jokes please.
