If you were north of the border over the weekend breathing in Scotland’s febrile political atmosphere you may have been standing side-by-side with none other than Rupert Murdoch.
But you may not have known it.
According to a tweet by the media tycoon, he went undercover for a true Scots experience.
We’re not quite sure how Murdoch travelled incognito around Glasgow, Aberdeen and the small coastal settlement of Rosehearty, but we’re picturing an elaborate stereotypical ensemble involving kilts, blue face paint and copious consumption of Irn-Bru and Tunnock’s teacakes.
Alas, it appears Murdoch’s undercover op came to an abrupt halt after he was spotted.
Murdoch has been a vociferous supporter of Alex Salmond, but yesterday he tweeted: “SNP not talking about independence, but more welfarism.” Maybe his trip north has cooled his ardour for the Yes vote.
