Embracing the ginger rodent

No-one can accuse the Chief Secretary to the Treasury of not having a sense of humour or even of being unable to laugh at himself. That is especially so after this article in yesterday's Independent that reports Danny Alexander's attendance at the launch of Ginger Rodent beer which shares the moniker fired at him as an insult by the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party.

The paper says that Mr. Alexander attended the launch by Cairngorm Brewery in Aviemore and even promised to take a couple of bottles back to Westminster for Harriet Harman:

The red-haired Highland MP remains good-humoured about the nickname, previously posting on social networking site Twitter: "I am proud to be ginger and rodents do valuable work cleaning up mess others leave behind."

Sounds like we need to have a few bottles on sale at the next Liberal Democrats Conference as well. Will the Conference Hotel ship them in especially?
