What about apol­ogy to tax­pay­ers?

The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - AGENDA -

SIR, – Not for the first time First Min­is­ter Ni­cola Stur­geon has had to apol­o­gise. This time she apol­o­gised to two women, who made sex­ual harass­ment com­plaints against Alex Sal­mond, af­ter he won a case at the Court of Ses­sion re­gard­ing the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s un­law­ful in­quiry into Mr Sal­mond’s con­duct.

Why only apol­o­gise to the two women?

What about an apol­ogy to the Scot­tish tax­payer who will foot a le­gal bill in ex­cess of £500,000, and that is be­fore Mr Sal­mond looks into fur­ther le­gal op­tions?

Just think what these funds could have given our health ser­vice or ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem. All a rather sad re­flec­tion of the cracks and back­room in­fight­ing which are now start­ing to be­come ap­par­ent in the SNP.
