JOHN Michie, the Taggart actor, supported Scottish independence a year ago. Now he’s supporting Labour. So a Labour gain, then. Good story. How about it, BBC Scotland, fancy running with this one?
Er, yes, well…
Our good friends at the BBC (you know, the same ones who are trying to protect Smilin’ Nicola Sturgeon from any public embarassment caused by her rudeness to a security guard) reckon that the real story is that Mr Michie used to support independence, and that therefore this is a bad news story for Labour! No, seriously.
I wonder how many SNP card-carriers there actually are at Pacific Quay?
