The Man Who Wore A Fake Moustache To The Scottish TV Debate Gives Us His Verdict

“Jim Murphy’s patter’s aw rang,” said the moustache man.

The four main leaders of Scottish politics clashed in a debate on Tuesday night – but the man who stole the show was Danny Mcafee or, as he came to be known, #themoustacheguy.

“I thought it was going to be a yawnfest,” said Mcafee. “So I brought along this moustache to brighten it up a bit – it was to give my mates at home a laugh really, and I have a bucket of missed calls so I think it worked.”

Mcafee then checked his phoned for the missed calls and pointed out: “All the calls are from one person actually, he’s probably drunk.”

Macfee said he is an SNP-supporter, and was impressed by Nicola Sturgeon’s performance in the debate – the backing of Scotland’s latest viral star will surely be welcomed by the first minister.

“[Sturgeon] was great tonight, I thought the debate was pretty boring but she was very good,” said the Mcafee, who also revealed he is in a Led Zeppelin tribute band called The Levee Breakers.

He was less impressed with Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy, however: “His patter’s aw rang.”

Both Murphy and Sturgeon told journalists they had spotted Mcafee’s moustache as soon as the debate began, but were unsure whether it was real or not.

Murphy said: “I decided not to mention it, I wasn’t sure if he was mentally okay.”

Mcafee disappeared in a swarm of media attention to enjoy his new found fame.
