The Return of ‘the Deer Muncher’, SNP MSP Joan McAlpine puts down the wine bottle to apologise to Holyrood for absence, lost track of time!
Yesterday highlighted something I have blogged on for sometime about my party, the Scottish National Party.
There are a lot of untalented people in it.
Joan McAlpine isn’t a politician.
I have decided to given Joan a new nickname, ‘The deer muncher’ after she failed to turn up to do her job representing the people in her area.
She was too busy eating like it was going out of fashion, smoked venison with Strathdon blue cheese dressing and poached red wine pear, followed by breast of Scottish chicken with grilled asparagus chorizo, olives and parma ham.
Just as Ian Davidson the Labour MP is ‘the deer hunter’, Joan McAlpine is ‘the deer muncher’.
Maybe the two can go on a hunting trip, Ian shoots them and Joan stands by with the cooking pot!
Joan McAlpine, one of Alex Salmond's closest aides but the reality if that is the truth, then Alex Salmond is poorly served, Joan McAlpine brings nothing to the table except:
“smoked venison with Strathdon blue cheese dressing and poached red wine pear, followed by breast of Scottish chicken with grilled asparagus chorizo, olives and parma ham”.
It wouldn’t matter how bad Joan McAlpine is or how offensive she gets, she was never in danger of being sacked as Alex Salmond’s aide.
They say you are known by the company you keep, bad news for Alex Salmond then.
The meal was washed down with a bottle of Pinot Grigio priced at just over £15.
Drinking wine during the working day, no wonder that McAlpine said:
"I am afraid I completely lost track of time.”
Boozing can do that especially when the bottle isn’t drained.
