"Ms Sturgeon said she had accepted Mr Mackay's resignation as his behaviour had fallen below the standard that is required"

Fallen below?? How bl**dy low is the standard?

The SNP use 'ankle' standards.

By ankle, I mean that they're 3 feet lower than a .

its a mere sideshow for BBC England, [ wow, the BBC covering an SNP story , what gives ? ]

this won't put off the faithful, nor should it, the independence juggernaut rumbles on.

In other news ……….. now somewhat overshadowed ironically in this case, the Independent Care Review outcome was pretty damning, and I was interested to see Nicola note how terrible this was and how it was her mission to fix the problems in the children in care system.

Given the focus the SNP have had on all things youth related for some considerable time, and assuming they have controlled the Scottish Parliament since 2007, what on earth have they been playing at?

Some also say, that with the current shenanigans with one shortly in the dock and another chancing his arm and tamperfering
where he should have known better not to, that their name is an abbreviation for Sex-No Problem.

Seriously Nasty People describes them perfectly in my book.

f, as has been alleged, she is married to the SNP big chief for convenience/political/career purposes, whilst shacked up in one of her other taxpayer funded houses with her lesbian lover... how would it not be?
Alternatively it is none of our business. Providing each side knows, how is it "sleaze" rather than just an unconventional love life?

Sleaze means "immoral, sordid, and corrupt behaviour or activities."

Immoral? No, if the husband/lover are aware.
Sordid? No, if the husband/lover are aware.
Corrupt? I fail to see any corruption. Providing the house, etc is declared and is in the rules.
Plenty of people lost their st over the Coronation Street MP's off the shoulder dress in the Houses of Parliament yesterday, so I'm going to suggest that even in Scotland a well hidden lesbian affair might cause some dismay

The bigger issue here is that Sturgeon will now be watching her back. MacKay was her chosen candidate to be her eventual successor and while she has been obsessing about ensuring he wouldn't be taking her place for a while yet there are others in the party who have other ideas and are sensing the opportunity to clear the path for their own leadership bids.

Of course MacKay has been incredibly indiscreet but he could have been 'spoken to' well before now about his behaviour and choice of associations, plus the timing of this release is no coincidence.

There is someone in the SNP corridors of power currently thinking 'that's one out of the way!'
wow, is it psychic powers or a mole that gives you your incredible insight?

Care Review publishing their findings, the announcement of the OECD's review into Scotland's failing Curriculum for Excellence and the summoning of ministers to give evidence at the ferries enquiry.

Today was supposed to be a day for 'overshadowing' all these bad-news stories with the media attention focused on the budget statement.

Ooops!

The finance minister resigning for grooming a young adult the day of a major budget, is a massive story.. So I'm surprised you're surprised..

I agree. The independence cult is bigger than either of those. People should judge the party on its success in government (poor - average) rather than their dubious nature of some of the their major politicians.

The SNP faithful don't care who runs Scotland, as long as they're not English. Anything else is water off a Duck's back.

If he has resigned what are the SNP’s numbers

Could the budget be voted down ?

Confidence issue and Scot election ?

Absolutely. 42 year old scumbags grooming 16 year old schoolgirls online is perfectly acceptable in the new Scotland.
Er, schoolboy I will correct you.

The SNP are equal opportunity perverts I will have you know!

The faithful are irrelevant. It's the swingers who matter, and stories like this and the upcoming Salmond one WILL be turning people away. Absolutely no question about it.

It's a taxi for indy, not a juggernaut.

Still an MSP I believe

If I were the Scottish Greens I would be turning the thumb screws massively in return for supporting the budget; a Scottish election off of the back of this and around the time of Salmond's trial could be something of a hair raising situation for our friends in yellow and black
