Willie Rennie, leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats, spoke to BBC reporters at an Edinburgh farm earlier today, and he promptly had the spotlight stolen from him by the pig enclosure in the background.
Looking back over today's Willie Rennie i/v. "We like to send a pictorial message about what we're asking for." pic.twitter.com/oQETx3CBUw— Philip Sim (@BBCPhilipSim) April 8, 2016
The timing of the hogs' decision to get their pork on is incredibly serendipitous given what Rennie was saying just as it happened. If you couldn't understand the Scottish brogue, here's the transcription:
We like to organize our visits to send a message in pictorial terms exactly what we’re asking for, and I think this does it very well today, I don’t quite know how but it certainly does it.
It certainly does. Whatever they were asking for, they got it.
Some reporters just happen to be in the right place at the right time, like this guy who went live just as the robber he was reporting on happened to stroll by.
