Right – this is a long story but I've had a longstanding obsession with the role of Soleros in Scottish politics. Donald Macleod So much so that whenever I meet a Scottish politician or journalist the discussion turns to Soleros. But at a campaign event in Edinburgh, the leader of the Scottish Conservatives took things too far. Jamie Ross @JamieRoss7 The bold @RuthDavidsonMSP has approached me and asked if I want to recreate the Solero photo with her. "Let's make this happen for BuzzFeed" 11:54 AM - 23 Apr 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite Her suggestion of feeding me a Solero came after a Scottish Labour staffer had already bought me a Solero. I had Solero juice everywhere. Jamie Ross @JamieRoss7 I have Solero juice on my notepad. My hands are sticky from Solero. I'm going to return from Scotland never wanting to see another Solero. 11:55 AM - 23 Apr 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite I laughed and assumed it was a joke as Davidson went to play the bagpipes. Jamie Ross @JamieRoss7 Here's Ruth Davidson playing the bagpipes. 12:27 PM - 23 Apr 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite But then she gathered the assembled pack of Scottish press photographers and made a beeline for the ice cream van. Jamie Ross @JamieRoss7 Oh my god the Solero photo is happening. I'm not entirely comfortable with this. 12:30 PM - 23 Apr 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite The moment came. Stephen Daisley @JournoStephen .@RuthDavidsonMSP feeds a Solero to @JamieRoss7. God, I love general elections. 12:33 PM - 23 Apr 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite It was a thing. Isabel Hardman @IsabelHardman Well there you go 12:33 PM - 23 Apr 2015 Reply Retweet Favorite And what you can't see is about 20 Scottish journalists barking commands at me and instructing me on how to eat the Solero. Scottish politics. Bloody hell.
