From answers to House of Commons questions yesterday:
Between 2010 and 2019 the annual cost of the Governor’s communications team rose from £108 439 to a staggering £819 640. The ‘reason’:
‘The Office is resourced to deliver all of the communications functions and activities expected and required of a Government Department in its own right and on behalf of the UK Government in Scotland. The number of staff, in communications, reflects this requirement.’
A government department ‘in its own right?’ Oh, come on! With responsibility for what function? Health? Transport? Crime and Justice? No? No? No? What then? Unionist propaganda? That’ll be it.
