Sampson Bags Best Quote

Best quote from episode one of Deadline, the history of the Scottish press – broadcast last night on BBC Scotland? Surely, Steve Sampson’s description of the front page story in the launch edition of the very short-lived Sunday Scot newspaper, launched fifteen years ago: “Bucket o’ shite”, before declining to comment any more on it, Sampson – along with Jack Irvine – having left the Scottish Sun to set the Sunday Scot up. The story was about a supposed lack of security at a nuclear dockyard.
