Ron Mackenna's column: TORY CASH COW.
HOW nice to see top Tory Irvine Laidlaw sharing a platform with Jack McConnell this week.
Once upon a time you wouldn't have got these two political enemies within 100 miles of each other.
Course as soon as you put the two words "charity" and "kids" together no politician in his right mind would turn down an opportunity to appear before the cameras.
Wonder if the First Minister tried to persuade Mr Laidlaw to stop bankrolling those perennial hard up losers, The Scottish Tories, and start bankrolling his own hard up, er winners, New Labour?
