National Assembly Day 

  • We begin with three BBC shows;…
  • The Andrew Marr show featured UK Health Minister Hancock and Scotland’s FM Sturgeon with Glenn Campbell opining…Then the Politics Scotland show anchored by Andrew Kerr which featured DFM John Swinney and had Glenn Campbell – again…Finally The Big Question presented by Nicky Campbell worried about social media…
  • We then review Iain MacWhirter’s piece in the Herald exposing corruption at the Crown Office (prosecution service) led by Lord Advocate James Wolfe which Iain links to the Salmond V Sturgeon scandal…which we then discuss in depth…
  • Also mentioned are;…Anas Sarwar,  Rape Crisis Scotland,  NHS health boards,  Gordon Dangerfield and SKY’s James Mathews disappearing reports,  Peter A Bell,  the Real McKay seafood and the Red Hand Commando.

Correction and apology. Lord Advocate James Wolffe apologised on behalf of Lord Advocate Frank Mulholland. “Having previously defended the case, the Lord Advocate has now admitted that the Crown, under his predecessor Frank Mulholland QC, acted unlawfully during a substantial part of the proceedings. Documents recovered by the pursuers’ advisers show senior Crown Office lawyers speaking about the “need to nail the Duff & Phelps people” – referring to the pursuers’ firm at the time of their appointment as administrators. The court heard that no minutes appeared to exist of meetings chaired by Mr Mulholland to discuss strategy in the case.”

Opinions by Jimmy Hutton, Norrie Stewart, Phil Attridge, Stewart Lochhead

A new route to indy?

Jimmy Hutton, Stewart Lochhead & Norry Stewart featured.

Press briefing… FM Sturgeon fielded testing questions about testing from the hack pack. With a solution three week delayed announced by Hancock, look for answers from London TV news, not the FM or us.

The method of counting Covid hospital patients has changed and today’s old number was 262 and the new one is 48. Expect accusations of fiddling from the hacks.

An Alternative Route to Indyref2… This paper, authored by Iain Lawson, Kenny MacAskill MP, Prof Allan MacInnes, Cllr. Chris McEleny and Dot Jessiman, is intended to “kickstart the process of examining alternative methods of holding a second referendum..” listen carefully. We’ll discuss it again.
