FM endorsement for P&J

FIRST Minister, Alex Salmond, can probably expect a drink or two from The Press and Journal’s Holyrood man, Tim Pauling, after providing a splendid plug for the newspaper in the Scottish Parliament.

Clashing with Scottish Labour leader, Wendy Alexander, over police numbers and pensions – especially in Grampian – Salmond remarked: “I think Wendy Alexander should extend her reading. The latest information on police numbers is set out in The Press and Journal on January 9… perhaps I should offer her a subscription.”
