Let Them Eat … Pie?


This should be the worst thing that happens when people disagree with their elected representatives. As reported at www.scotsman.com:

Scotland Office minister David Mundell was hit by a pie as he arrived at a private reception yesterday.

Mr Mundell, the only Tory MP in Scotland, was in St Andrews, Fife, to attend a private event.

He was met by a group protesting against cuts to education.

It was not known who threw the pastry, understood to a be a shop-bought key lime pie.

Shop-bought? Where’s the honor in that? Nothing expresses a strongly-felt belief more than a home-baked pie or cake.

Conservative councillor Dorothea Morrison, who was also attending the reception at St Andrews, told the Courier newspaper: “He just took it calmly and said he wasn’t going to press any charges.”

A Tory spokesman said Mr Mundell, MP for Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale, was at the reception in a party capacity and would not be taking further action.

Well played, sir. Here’s the source, including a photo of Mr. Mundell.
