Stewart Jackson : I heard Alex Salmond is unveiling a chocolate statue of himself
During the debate, Stewart Jackson stood up and commented on Mr Salmond’s absence.
Mr Jackson said to the House: “I notice that the Honourable member for Gordon isn’t in his place at the moment. I had heard he was unveiling a statue of himself and it was chocolate so he could then admire it and then eat it.”
As farcical as the accusation may sound, it was only last month that Mr Salmond came under fire for missing the Commons debate on Syria so he could attend the unveiling of a portrait of himself.
Perhaps Dot Commons will get lucky, and someone will tweet a picture of Mr Salmond with his chocolate counterpart.
Stranger things have happened…….
