Another ‘Headline of the month’ – wood you believe it?

THERE’S a story in today’s Edinburgh Evening News about some of the wooden decoration on the outside of the Scottish Parliament building having to be replaced, because it is rotten, and at great expense to the taxpayer. It prompted this headline, penned by sub-editor, Neil Hutton, and has been nominated by the paper’s editor, Tom Little: ‘Holyrood’s dead wood replaced (MSPs survive)’.

It becomes the latest contender in allmediascotland’s ‘Headline of the month’ competition – in association with whisky folk, Whyte & Mackay.

Up for grabs each month are bottles of Whyte & Mackay Special whisky – for both the author of the headline and the person who has nominated it, with the monthly winners entered in a ‘Headline of the year’ competition where two bottles, each worth £150, of Whyte & Mackay 30 year-old are the prizes.

Eligible are headlines in Scottish newspapers (national and local), plus Scottish magazines and online.
