Christmas Interview with John Nicolson (SNP MP for East Dunbartonshire)

The next addition to my series of ‘Christmas Interviews’ is with the SNP MP, John Nicolson:

  • What’s your favourite Christmas food?

“I’m veggie. So my Christmas dinner will be a rich mushroom stew with Brussels sprouts and mashed tatties. Then rice pudding with damson compote. I like all of these things.

But if I have to plump for a single favourite it would be home made mince pies.”


  • What is your favourite Christmas film?

“It’s A Wonderful Life.”


  • What is your favourite Christmas song?

“In the Bleak Mid Winter.”


  • What was the best Christmas present you ever received?

“A blue scooter with white rubber handles. It was from Father Christmas. I think I’d not long missed him. He’d left sooty footprints across the lino on the kitchen floor.”


  • What present would you get for David Cameron?

“I wouldn’t.”
