An exchange with the editorial team at the Herald following their disgraceful distortion today. They obviously think we are all daft

You managed to insert the ridiculous charge that the SNP snubbed the Diago management which is preposterous and untrue and straight out of the Labour Party armoury.

Can you furnish me with one instance of the SNP attacking anybody else on this issue or being involved in bickering?

All the bickering has come from the Labour Party and all the accusations.

It's an old political trick. Start up a fight by attacking your opposition then make sure the innocent target gets blamed as well as the attacker.

Perhaps you haven't noticed.

In what sense was the editorial a disgrace? Its point was to criticise all parties that engaged in point-scoring to the detriment of the campaign to save Diageo jobs. I don't think it could have been clearer on that point.

Your editorial today, which attempted to elevate to a serious matter a particularly crass episode of mischief from the desperate Labour Party, disgraces the Herald.

Exactly. You "managed to insert the ridiculous charge" into the editorial as I quite clearly stated. Do you imagine fanciful, ridiculous and offensive quotations which might be at home in the Daily Record are what any serious person would expect to see reported in a Herald editorial?

You also have not furnished me any evidence of the SNP being involved in initiating any bickering or attacking any other person or agency on this issue.

That has all been engineered by the Labour party. Yet you chose to apportion an equal share of the blame to the SNP.

You must think we are all daft.

We did not "insert the ridiculous charge that the SNP snubbed the Diageo management". The quote about snubbing scotland was attributed to John Quigley of the Unite trade union. At no point in our coverage does The Herald accuse Mr Salmond of snubbing Diageo. Perhaps you hadn't noticed.

From Mike Knowles

Fascinating stuff. And who'd be the Pope having to negotiate his way around all this lot? And going back to last year's Labour conference, the sight of Mrs Brown getting onto the platform to speak up for her husband, it was the cheesiest cringiest eeriest thing ever. My wife's a potter. If at a meeting of the Northern Potters I'd got up to speak up for the quality of her stuff, she'd have been humiliated beyond words. She have responded by breaking every piece up into little pieces. How the Browns can be so thick beggars belief.
