Recently appointed Scotsman journalist, Conor Marlborough [That bit’s not a spoof], above, is to lead the Scotsman’s online division in a challenge to Wings Over Scotland.

In a nod to Wings’ the Rev Stu Campbell, Malborough will style himself Parson and wear the dog collar faithfully, even when furloughed in his mother’s kitchen.

In an effort to counter the recent SNP surge, Conor will write daily, articles which appear to have been written in a parallel universe where devolution didn’t happen and where Ross Thompson is Secretary of State for Scotland.

Talking-up Scotland’s editor, Professor Longhair Robertson, has accused Malborough of being just another love child of the PM and refuses to utter the word ‘Scotsman’ ever again.
