Gordon Calling

A co-conspirator calls to tell that Alex Salmond finally this morning at 9 a.m. got a phone call to congratulate him on being elected First Minister of Scotland. They discussed the Peterhead carbon capture project, and the forthcoming Scottish Junior Cup Final to be held on Sunday between Kelty Hearts (from Gordon’s constituency) and Linlithgow Rose (Salmond’s home town team). Salmond is presenting the cup. Brown won’t be there as he has a hustings to attend. Blair has yet to contact Salmond.
