This is the publication of the report by the small group of MSPs, with a Unionist majority built-in, contradicting the legal verdict by James Hamilton, former director of public prosecutions for Ireland, which cleared the First Minister.
This partisan report was dead-in-the water long before its publication but the MSM have delighted in repeating the jaundiced words of those dread clowns, Murdo Fraser, Margaret Mitchell and Alex Cole-Hamilton.
The Scottish Tories’ motion of no confidence, based on leaks by the above three, in the First Minister, not ‘Sturgeon’, was defeated back in March when the Greens refused to back it. Their leader, Patrick Harvie, condemned it as ‘opportunistic political theatre.’
BBC Scotland and the Herald were all over this story yesterday, presenting it as new and definitive when it is old, stale and worthless.
