Yesterday’s Scotsman reported on the stepping down of Labour MP and minister, Kitty Ussher, another to have her housing affairs caught up in the MPs’ expenses scandal……..thus prompting the headline: ‘Fall of the house of Ussher as she quits to save embarrassment’.
It was the idea of reporter, Craig Brown, and nominated by Scotsman sub-editor, Martin Gray, for this month’s Headline of the Month competition, sponsored by Whyte & Mackay.
Each month, a bottle each of Whyte & Mackay’s Special whisky goes to the author and nominator of what’s considered to be the best headline. What’s more, the best headline of the year wins its author and nominator each a bottle of limited edition Whyte & Mackay 30 year-old, worth over £150 a bottle.
