INQUIRY INTO NICOLA STURGEONS TISSUE OF LIES ABOUT FRENCH MEETING
After complaints from Scotland’s “First Minister” about the tissue of lies fabricated about the “First Minister’s” meeting with the French ambassador.
Scotland’s “First Minister” demanded a probe how the Daily Telegraph manufactured this story which supposedly came from insiders within Whitehall.
The First Minister said: “This story has already been shown to be 100 per cent untrue – having been comprehensively rejected by both the French ambassador and Consul General.
“The real issue is how a second hand and inaccurate account of this meeting – which was not even attended by the UK Government - came to be written by a UK Government civil servant and then leaked to Tory-supporting newspapers at the start of a General Election campaign.
“It suggests a Whitehall system out of control – a place where political dirty tricks are manufactured and leaked.
“But roll back from this a little bit here, there should no longer be any questions to me about whether I’ve said these things. Not only have I said I didn’t say them, the person I was having the conversation with said I didn’t say them.
“That fact that I am still being asked these questions is completely missing the point here.
“The point is, who in the UK Government put together this inaccurate account and who gave it to the Daily Telegraph.”
International Scotland comment.;;
Well readers; we did tell you the knives are out for anything north of the border including Scotland’s “First Minister”, Alex Salmond and the SNP politicians. This is only the start of the rubbish likely to come from over the border – these muck spreaders will find Scottish voters will remember this.
