"Ah! The Crossest man in Scotland"
Simon Foster
"Oh don't tell me he's gone feral! He was fucking terrifying when you had him on the leash!"
Oliver Reeder

Jamie McDonald is a Senior Press Officer at Number 10, Downing Street during the administration of the Prime Minister who preceded Tom Davis.

Background[edit | edit source]

Personal[edit | edit source]

Jamie was born in Motherwell, Scotland and thus speaks with a heavy Lanarkshire accent. He is a major fan of American entertainer Al Jolson, threatening Ollie Reeder after he insults the formers music.

Professional[edit | edit source]

He is introduced as a Senior Press Officer at Number 10, and the closest thing Malcolm Tucker has to a second in command. His demeanour and attitude is even more aggressive and profane, however much like Malcolm he is shown to have a legitimately polite and gentlemanly decorum to those not involved in the political sphere.
