The Scottish Conservative leader calls for devolution from Holyrood to local councils, and says he is looking forward to campaigning with Boris Johnson.
It’s clearer than ever that the Scottish Government is covering things up. But that is likely not enough to bring down Sturgeon before May’s elections.
Liam Fox has confirmed this week that they are part of the Home Civil Service, and thus answerable to the House of Commons and its Ministers.
Also: fresh woe for Nicola Sturgeon has her husband, the SNP’s chief executive, appears to contradict her evidence to MSPs on the Salmond scandal.
Surely they have seen enough zombie films to know that pumping yet more bullets into a zombie doesn’t work. Fresh tactics, not ‘more powers’, are needed.
SNP ministers are blocking witnesses and withholding legal advice. Can the opposition capitalise?
In Scotland they start at zero. So Level 5 is actually Level 4. Then the Scottish Government decided to change the numbers to letters.
Also: true scale of the Irish Protocol’s impact on commerce, and Stormont’s ‘rank incompetence’, show how Ulster unionism needs a refresh.
The different administrations are all in different places with increasing bad blood between them. Also, devosceptics look set to win seats in Wales.
Also: the SNP paradox. Sturgeon gets sucked deeper into the Salmond scandal as independence soars in the polls.
Like the May Government, an electoral coalition built around an existential question is propping up a badly ailing political vehicle.
He has seen the SNP hold out for a week before swallowing teachers’ impossibly rosy predicted grades in full – and clearly thinks he can do better.
Also: Johnson makes ‘plea for the Union’ as he orders ministers to make more visits to Scotland and prevent the SNP taking credit for UK Government policies.
Criminal behaviour under the new law would be based on offence caused, rather than intended – a significant difference to England and Wales.
By deflecting attention from their own record, the row is a huge gift for the SNP – and the stakes are much higher than the 2021 elections.
