>I am currently engulfed in a fury unrivalled in its intensity at the Scotsman’s political blog, The Steamie, for its shameless referral to the Telegraph’s inaccurate claims that Jo Swinson claimed for make up on her expenses.
This comes on the day that the Guardian, albeit rather grudgingly, corrected their reporting of this complete non-story.
I can’t find a way to link directly to the Steamie’s article, but it’s entitled “David Maddox – Don’t Tell the Candidate”. I’ve already left a comment there but don’t let that stop you from adding your own thoughts. You can also complain to the Scotsman directly here.
I love the way Jennie,in one of the best and funniest postings I’ve read in a long time, lambasted the Telegraph. Then CSI Graham not only forensically took the story apart, but gave us some useful things we could do about it.
To add to James’ list of all the hard work on behalf of her constituents that Jo is renowned for, she was also named as Scotland’s hardest working MP by the Sun of all things – a worthy accolade, but concentrating on her work actually in Parliament. She works as hard again on the ground in her constituency.
I am seriously annoyed at the sexism and innuendo in these recent articles about Jo and it’s time these publications mended their ways.
UPDATE: I have just woken up from a long sleep to discover that the inaccurate parts of that story have now been removed, along with all our comments. Thanks for your help in achieving Justice for Jo!
