Unspun: the political diary

A RARE misstep for Glasgow SNP MP Alison Thewliss on Tuesday in a debate on Universal Credit. Ms Thewliss told employment minister Alok Sharma how bureaucratic sloth meant someone making a claim on December 5, when UC starts in Shettleston, wouldn’t get a penny until January 9. “Is the Minister happy to be known as the Grinch that stole Glasgow’s Christmas?” Mr Sharma looked baffled. “I’ve never been described as a Grinch before.” No wonder. The Grinch repented. Tories don’t. . https://www.heraldscotland.com/politics/16994717.unspun-the-political-diary/
