RECORD VIEW:Fool's put his foot right in it.
Now we know why the locals in Sutherland were so quick to turn their backs on him.
He had already outraged them because of an affair with a neighbour's wife, which broke up two homes.
No wonder he is under police protection. His conduct had already offended the close-knit crofting community - and then he put their livelihoods in danger by repeatedly visiting his brother in Cumbria, at the heart of the foot and mouth outbreak.
The ill-named Shepherd knew the risks he was taking, but he didn't give a damn. He was only interested in suiting himself and treated his neighbours with arrogance and a total lack of consideration.
Yesterday, we said he was utterly stupid. Now we know he is utterly selfish as well.
