In 1999 former leader of the SNP Alex Salmond did this.
I’d forgotten all about this frankly weird, and somewhat suggestive picture (”oh, Alex, let me have a suck of your cold yellow SNP coloured lolly and taste independence with every lick’‘) until this Buzzfeed article outlines the trial of one of it’s contributors trying to find out just who that woman was and why she posed for such an image?
The picture was taken at Stirling University, and apparently her name is Kate Adamson. Now I’m not the greatest fan of Buzzfeed ‘journalism’ but this is so bloody bizarre that I’d like to know the full story as well, so knowing that a fair few Scots look at my blog I’m throwing this out there to see if anyone can fill in the blanks.
And yes, I know I could just Tweet Alex Salmond and find out but I do think finding the woman in the picture and getting her story could be fascinatingly hilarious. If anyone has any information then please leave it in the comments. Thanks!
