Salmond’s Stone of Destiny

Alex Salmond is on a little farewell tour as First Minister, unveiling his “legacy stone” at Heriot Watt University, near Edinburgh:

“Rocks would melt with the sun before I allow tuition fees to be imposed on Scotland’s students”

He’s a big fan of the Burns quote, using it again only a couple of months ago to say: “Rocks would melt with the sun before I’d ever set foot in the House of Lords”.

What better way to remember a politician with an inflated sense of self-importance than chiselling his quote into a naff piece of masonry?

Tobias Ellwood tells LBC…

“So Jeremy Corbyn will meet with Hamas, Hezbollah and the IRA with no preconditions, but won’t meet the British Prime Minister without her agreeing to his precondition.”
