Matthew Marr, chief press aide to Wendy Alexander, has issued an apology for his behaviour at the Scottish Politician of the Year Awards last Thursday.
It is claimed that he also ranted, ‘I hate the f***ing middle classes’ and greeted a fellow guest with the question, ‘Is that your bird, then?’.
A Labour Party insider said: ‘I think he’ll go into something outside politics. He probably won’t go back into the political front line.’
Marr had been in the role for only six weeks, after working in the press office at Glasgow City Council. He could not be reached for comment as PRWeek went to press.
