John Smeaton has had a blast at ineffectual Labour leader, Iain (honest I'm really well known) Gray, in his column in today's SOARAWAY TORY SUN saying:
SCOTTISH Labour leader Iain 'interesting' Gray had a wee pop at yours truly over the weekend.
The most boring man in politics claimed the BBC had blown over a MILLION pounds making a documentary about me. I wish - I'm bloody skint this month. That was for the show Make Me An MP, about my failed attempt to get elected in the Glasgow North East by-election back in November.
But appearing as a guest on the Radio Scotland show Off The Ball on Saturday, Gray gloated: "For John Smeaton the BBC spent five grand for each vote." That adds up to a whopping £1.29million for my 258 votes - way over the show's five-figure budget. The former maths teacher got his sums hopelessly wrong. And they say teacher standards are falling? They must have improved when he quit for politics.
OFF THE BALL, JOHN? I reckon that last comment was one RIGHT IN THE BALLS!
