PRESSURE was growing on First Minister Henry McLeish last night not to
turn his back on Scotland as critics rounded on his planned holiday
trip to Italy.
McLeish, who has been at the forefront of the tourist campaign to lure
visitors back to Scotland in the wake of the foot-and-mouth outbreak,
is to fly to Sorrento later this month for his summer vacation.
But his decision to go abroad was blasted as “inconsistent” by the SNP
and a spokesman added: “It seems to be a case of `Do as I say’ rather
than `Do as I do’.”
