From Daily Record:
"Key evidence that destroyed the Scottish Government’s case against Alex Salmond was only disclosed after the Lord Advocate stepped in to demand all the emails held by the First Minister’s Permanent Secretary.

We can reveal that Scotland’s most senior lawyer Roddy Dunlop QC told a court he was “personally horrified” as the case crumbled and Lord Advocate James Wolffe ordered a trawl of civil servant Leslie Evans communications.


And our investigation discloses how the £512,000 legal bill for Nicola Sturgeon’s doomed battle with her former mentor over a sexual harassment probe clocked up – as Dunlop’s advice to abandon was ignored."

"They showed clear previous contact between women making sexual harassment allegations against Salmond and Judith Mackinnon, the official appointed to investigate it.

In explosive legal advice, Dunlop – the Dean of the Faculty of Advocates – furiously complained of his “extreme professional embarrassment” that assurances documents had been disclosed “turned out to be false”."

SNP 'protected' chief whip Patrick Grady over grope allegations​


A SENIOR SNP MP accused of sexual harassment was not fully investigated by the party despite multiple reports raising concerns about his behaviour.

The Herald can reveal that Patrick Grady, the party’s chief whip and SNP MP for Glasgow North, is the MP at the centre of harassment allegations.

The only way to deal with gropers when in a crowd/on the tube/bus is to grab the wandering hand and hold it up in the air while shouting 'whose groping hand is this?'. It works a treat.

Browsing the Glasgow Herald (The Herald) this morning, I was noticing a shift on Indyref2; has the SNP shot their bolt?

"A quarter of Scots would support holding a second independence referendum in the next year, while 45% say it should not take place for the next few years, an opinion poll has found.

The Panelbase poll for the Sunday Times found 25% supported holding a referendum in the next 12 months.

Some 30% said they would support a referendum in the next two to five years while 45% agreed with the statement “there should not be another Scottish independence referendum in the next few years”."

"Earlier this week, two other opinion polls suggested support for a No vote had pulled ahead of Yes.
Support for independence was ahead in many opinion polls throughout the latter part of 2020."

Seems they are backtracking on wanting a referendum this year as support starts to ebb away. Still demanding more money from their English captors, and resisting suggestion they should be given full fiscal autonomy - stand on their own financial feet.

Quarter of Scots support indyref2 in the next year, poll suggests

I suppose the results from the May the 6th elections will provide clarity as to what Scotlands wants.

As always it is the voice of those that shout the loudest that is heard. The silent majority do not want it.

Maybe not, as not all people that vote SNP support independence, but just unhappy on what's on offer from the others.

A Tory lobs a hand grenade into SNP Party with fresh accusations of lies perjury and possible criminal conspiracy .... David Davies using House of Commons privilege ,to read out one of many excerpts from a whistleblower, which can prove Scotland's Chief of Staff interfered in the Salmond case and when ... which makes the First Ministers Nicky's story, on when she knew of the complaints "even more implausible." and as said could lead to both perjury and a case on criminal conspiracy .



Mr Davis said that information he had received related to an exchange of texts on the 6 February 2018 between two Scottish Government civil servants, suggesting the First Minister’s chief of staff “is interfering in the complaints process against Alex Salmond.”

He added: "If true, this suggests the chief of staff had knowledge of the Salmond case in February."

He said Nicola Sturgeon had “tied herself to (an) April date in both parliamentary and legal statements. She was of course aware earlier than that: the question is just how aware and how much earlier.”

You know all this “he said--- she said” this date, that date. He knew, she knew, she never knew. It’s all just political dicking about. In Scotland, nobody gives at rats arse.
So, if for instance you were perhaps some kind of political influencer , you know, the kind that are planted on internet forums to try and influence the way people might vote. The kind that are easily spotted, gathering way too much information on a subject that geopolitically should be of little interest to them. From a Scottish political point of view they would be completely wasting their time, if someone was inclined to vote SNP then all this tabloid trash isn't going to alter their thinking. If someone was perhaps swithering on where to place their vote, then raking over old garbage that everybody is fed up hearing about, will most likely incline them to vote SNP just to give the powers that be in Westminster a kick up the arse.

I'm surprised there are any self-respecting rats left in Scotland. . . . aren't they all deserting a sinking ship?

This whole scandal is both appalling and a joke, and no-one is going to come out of it in a good light.

I wonder if Nicola still supports SNP MP Dr Philippa Whitford, who last July said the Government should be working with EU partners in its vaccine procurement programme...
