Tory MP: SNP Don’t Know Their Rs from their Elbow

Tory MP Simon Hoare has an interesting perspective on the story that Scots are losing the distinctive rolling “R” from their accent.

“I listened with great attention Mr Deputy Speaker to the Scottish Nationalists this afternoon, ilistened with great attention because we are told in the press that they now can’t say their Rs. Well they can certainly say their Rs, but when it comes to welfare reform and economic management I’m afraid they don’t know their Rs from their elbow”

Cybernats will love that.
