"Farewell, Stalin's Granny."Stalin's Granny was coined as a nickname for Helen Liddell who has recently been removed from the position of Secretary of State for Scotland. According to the Helen Liddell Fan Pages, nepotism is not exactly unknown in her part of the world:
For example, of the 21 councillors, as many as 5 had no relatives at all as council employees. The remaining 16 only had a total of 68 relatives between them as council employees.So "Granny" has gone; it's a pity that Stalin's grandson, uncle, father, daughter-in-law and all too many cousins still infest the smoke-filled-rooms of Scottish politics.
