Headline of the month: and yet another contender

YESTERDAY’S Scotsman reported on the stepping down of Labour MP and minister, Kitty Ussher… 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 an estimated £150-plus a bottle.
