However, one critical piece in the story is missing - Winston attacked Hooton first.
Secondly we here believe that Hooton has now opened the floodgates.. Its about time more people followed his lead and stood up to Winston - his bully boy tactics have long been forgiven because of their side show value but its time for reporters, and commentators and indeed voters to stand up to him. Winston is only a wee shit remember , loud and narcissistic but still a little wee cowardly shit none the less, so why would anyone let him get away with being a bully?
We say well done Matthew - and watch Eye to Eye TV1 11.30am today
and here is Hootons blog on what really happened
We really like this bit
He kept calling me a liar. I kept calling him a liar.
Willie stood up and said “cut” (or words to that effect). In the
discussion about how to proceed after we were no longer recording, I told
Winston he was a “fucking cunt” - in retrospect, I accept that I left out
the important adjectives “lying” and “corrupt” between the other two
appropriate but more Anglo-Saxon words.
