Love conquers all


Whatever next, May and Corbyn? or Shameless Milne and Julian Assange’s lawyer?

I know we’ve heard a lot about Labour getting into bed with the SNP but….

Kezia Dugdale in relationship with SNP MSP Jenny Gilruth


Amused to see that whilst Guido is under attack from Hacked Off for printing the story about Shameless the BBC report about Dugdale is dressed up as being a report about reporting news that isn’t news….so getting the story out there anyway…much as they did with the Trump ‘dodgy dossier’ though then using a proxy fallguy, Buzzfeed, to dish the dirt and take the flak for doing so.

In a joint statement, Ms Dugdale and Ms Gilruth asked for their privacy to be respected and said they did not consider their new relationship to be “news”.

The statement said: “We don’t consider this to be ‘news’ – but we appreciate others might and we want to go about our daily lives normally.

“We would like to thank our friends, family and colleagues for their kindness over the past few months and for their love and support.

“We’d politely ask that our privacy is respected because while we are both politicians, we are also human beings – in a new relationship, which we cherish.”

The BBC reports it anyway.

Wonder if they’ve got good legs?

    I have seen that many people think this is a private matter and not for the public domain ( in lefty news comments – I keep an eye on the enemy). But it is two politicians and part of the price of politics is public entitlement to know about what taxpayer funded politicians get up too.

    Further – this is an example of two members of different parties getting into bed together. When parties do the same – Tory/DUP – others scream like young children.

      Could you even imagine the comments and jokes on the BBC if Davidson was found to be having an affair with another MSP, Conservative or other.

      I’m afraid I consider this very much news. Getting into bed, quite literally, with an MSP from a rival party is incompatible with being a party leader. Who knows what is being leaked, what tactics are being compromised, particularly if the relationship ends. For a private individual, it’s a private matter, but not for a politician in a high profile position. Kezia Dugdale needs to make a choice as to what she wants. She can’t have both. If I were a Labour supporter I’d be livid.
