Tory MP’s Son Impaled On Metal Spike

by | 10th, February 2009

EDINBURGH University student Oliver Mundell – whose father is Conservative MP David Mundell – was climbing over a fence in the city’s George Square so he could build a snowman with friends when he slipped.

A metal spike passed through his foot. He was young Tory kebab.

Come the revolution. Tsk! Where’s your compassion now?

Fire crew and hacksaw freed the 19-year-old before he was taken to hospital.

Says Mundell:

“I had my foot on a wooden board propped against the fence, which gave way and the spike went straight through my other foot. It took seven firemen about fifteen minutes to cut my foot free – I’m looking at a lengthy spell in a wheelchair now.”

David Mundell has been Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland since 2005, and is the only Conservative MP to represent a Scottish constituency in the Westminster parliament.

Listen out for any questions of wheelchair matters…
