Scottish transport Minister, Stewart Stevenson, has resigned because he got stuck in the snow too many times and had to be dug out.
Whilst attempting to co-ordinate the logistics in Scotland during the heavy snow falls he drove into a snow drift and wasn't seen for three days.
The Scottish authorities sent out snow ploughs and snow men to search for him, but unfortunately the 7 foot high snow drift was too high for Steven to send out an SOS on his mobile.
After three days of sucking snow and surviving on a carrot he found in a passing snow man's mouth, he was eventually found, by another passing snowman on a sledge?
Steven was actually running the snow disaster programme when his 4 wheel drive skidded out of control and landed in the drift, silly arse.
He couldn't stand the sniggering and sly comments of his colleagues and fellow Ministers, so he decided to resign. He booked a holiday in sunny Dubai and now someone much more qualified is doing his job, the local snowman dressed in a kilt! (only until the big thaw though, then a mermaid can take over!)
