Unspun: the political diary

Admirable Crichton HUGE excitement among politicos this week at the news that former Daily Record Westminster editor Torcuil Crichton is standing for Labour in SNP-held Western Isles at the general election. It was a great relief for the Labour-supporting paper, which saw two other Pol Eds go off to work with Tories. Torcuil is also terrifically well-liked. He even got support from, er, former Scottish Tory boss Baroness Ruth Davidson. “Congratulations on your selection, Torc. X” she tweeted. What would Sir Keir say? Awks, Torcs.
