We hate all political parties and politicians equally aboard our good vessel, so imagine our delight at the footage above as one of the biggest, most inept leaders to ever grace the political stage in Scotland served us up a healthy slice of schadenfreude.
In a scene straight out of political satire series The Thick Of It Scottish Labour Leader and Quagmire look-alike Iain Gray bolted from Glasgow’s Central Station on foot this week from protesters angry about the possibility of job cuts. After a short chase through the city’s Union Street Gray took refuge in a nearby Subway sandwich outlet where he quickly became trapped.
Gray and his entourage were to stage a ‘meet the people‘ event, in the run up to the Scottish parliamentary elections on May 5th, at Central Station but a handful of protesters showed up to challenge the leader who decided that the best course of action would be to sidle slowly to one side before legging it. The man who famously ‘walked the killing fields of Cambodia, single handedly stormed the Libyan embassy in London in 84’ armed only with an industrial stapler and led the invasion of Iraq shirtless and on horseback, quickly found himself trapped in a sandwich shop which had no back door.
We can only imagine the ear roasting this tit had to take from Malcolm Tucker back at pary HQ.
