I know I’m repeating myself by mentioning that Scotland’s A&E service surpassed the 95% treated in 4 hours or less target this month but I thought this story of admittedly dubious provenance (professorial talk eh?) made it worth the repetition.
Only 191 read my report on the target in:
Yet, 13 754 read:
I clearly have something to learn about headline writing.
Back to the main story. Allegedly, Ruth nearly knocked Alex over as she barged, typically, past him muttering that he sounds like Gary Tank Commander’s dad. NOW let me be absolutely clear, that I like both Alex Rowley and Gary Tank Commander. I’m frae the East coast myself, like, but they do sound a bit alike, like, and they look a bit like father and son, like. I think Alex is also not that opposed to independence, aye?
Here they are so you can compare yourself:
Anyhoo, Alex allegedly suggested that Ruth looked a bit like a wrestler. She then challenged him to a fight. Realising her alleged advantages of youth and nastiness, he declined the offer, suggested she stick to wrestling buffaloes, see above, and then Kezia made the valid point in the headline.
Just in passing Kezia’s voice reminds me of my days as a teacher. I’d come back in after lunch-break to find the boys in their seats, bloodied, hair tousled and ties squint but a queue of girls at my desk with complaints delivered in whiny voices like Kezia:
‘Mr Robertson, Jennifer said my mum is a tart!’
Some of this may be untrue. I’m just reporting what I heard.
