Herald afraid to headline failure of multi-millionaire McCall?

We’ve taken the liberty of clarifying the Herald’s chicken-hearted headline today, from ‘State-owned ferry firm hits back at Ferguson shipyard over disastrous contract’ to the above.

We’ve been inspired by both the Herald’s previous position on blaming the SNP, just a month ago, and the catchy Times headline, from December 2019, below:

Michael Glackin of the Sunday Times is the only serious contender to the Scotsman’s demented Brian Wilson as the most poisonously, blindly instinctive hater of anything even passingly connected to the SNP or independence in the Scottish media.
