Forgive my cynicism, but this won't make the slightest difference. It would require the media to be onside and willing to undertake a genuine investigation into all that has gone on, to hold the party of government to account, and to publicise the inconvenient truths that would no doubt be revealed.
There has to be a tipping-point for this. It is now in the public domain that the Scottish Government redacted evidence that they were acting unlawfully in this instance. This calls into question all other redactions.

How long before full disclosure on the Salmond case....?
Redactions for no reason other than keeping quiet the fact the govt was arguably acting unlawfully by not operating a fair tender process..

""The impact of a successful legal challenge could be high – in the worst case the contract could be declared ineffective – and a challenge could be brought at any time as the contract terms are not being made public," says the redacted text. "

I haven't seen The 'Burger on these hallowed pages for quite a while. Perhaps Pete and the magpies have laid him off...

I think its more he fell foul of the new NP&E rules. 1000 posts in motoring sections before being allowed in NP&E .
He may reappear one day but I doubt it.

I've just finished watching the wee clip on Youtube of Douglas Ross and her majesty Queen Nicola Of Being A Complete , its amazing they are even trying to defend this...caught with their breeks down, the TOOOOAAARRIIEES are sitting laughing at them, she is not happy her face is like a skelpt arse.

John Swinney's baws are in a tin.

This better have resignations a plenty.

As Edinburger had over 1000 posts prior to the new N,P&E entry criteria he should still be able to access this thread.

There won't be. Nobody in the SNP resigns or is dismissed. They are simply allowed to fade away into the background.

It's a massive scandal for sure, and if the same thing happened in Westminster it would be the top story on every 24 hour rolling news channel for weeks to come. However, as it has happened in the Shortbread Senate under the watchful eye of the Porridgeburo, nothing whatsoever of any consequence will happen. The opposition parties will attempt to make some hay from it, Sturgeon will huff and puff a bit, there will be some social media outrage from the Yestapo that their Dear Leader was challenged by the Toooaareees, then everyone will move on to the next crisis on the agenda. Meanwhile, the Scottish Media will continue to provide frankly laughable levels of scrutiny.

Anyone thinking that this will change the square root of fk all are sadly mistaken.

John Swinnney not looking a happy bunny during those exchanges. Sturgeon still insists black is white.

Nothing will happen, the media will whitewash it, the media are bought. Scotland may as well be North Korea at this point

North Korea might be a tad hyperbolic, but yeah, the square root of fk all meaningful will happen.

She just can't help herself and opens with sarcasm. Its really pathetic. And not forgetting she is on a higher intellectual level.

But her facial expressions give her away.

Speaking to STV News, Freeman said: “We respect the decision of that jury and of the court. I still maintain very strongly that we were right to hand this matter over to the police when we were in a situation where a significant sum of money was unaccounted for.

“And that was money given to us by ordinary men and women, the length and breadth of Scotland, actually in some instances beyond, given to us in trust. We couldn’t account for it. No explanation given to us about what happened.
“We had to at that point do the right thing, which was let the police, the Crown Office and now the court themselves decide what was the facts of the matter and what needed to be done.”
And that's over £24,000. can we apply the same to £600,000?
