Mcconnell Comes Last In 'Zoo Trustworthiness' Poll
FIRST Minister Jack McConnell is the party leader least trusted to take your 19 year old-sister to the zoo, according to the first Daily Mash readers' poll.
The Scottish Labour leader secured just 15% of the votes, well behind his political rivals.
Nicol Stephen, the Liberal Democrat leader, claimed a convincing victory with 43%. SNP chief Alex Salmond and Solidarity leader Tommy Sheridan shared second spot with 21% each.
"This is a very damaging blow to Labour's strategy as we enter the last week of the campaign," said Professor Nathan Muir of Glasgow Clyde University.
"Labour set out to portray McConnell as a safe pair of hands when it came to people's 19 year-old sisters, whether it was at the zoo, the pictures or walking the West Highland Way.
"They even tested McConnell's reactions on a visit to the zoo last month and he was absolutely captivated by the penguins. Couldn't see past them."
Professor Muir added: "Sheridan scored surprisingly well, but Salmond will be disappointed. He's a master of the zoo visit. That's his territory.
"As for Nicol Stephen, this poll shows he is seen as decent, trustworthy, responsible and a boring little tit."
