Political colours merge into maroon on football weekly

A WEEKLY newspaper following the fortunes of Edinburgh football club, Hearts FC, and its fans, has pulled off something of a political coup.

Planet Hearts, published by Ayr-based Planet Ink Ltd, has had former club chairman and long-term Jambo, Lord Foulkes, a Labour Peer, as a columnist since its launch almost a year ago.

And with the forthcoming Scottish Parliamentary elections on the horizon, the full-colour tabloid has opened up its pages to other Jambos across the political spectrum.
