Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am frankly unable to follow the arguments in the Salmond v. Sturgeon situation in Scotland, but the following quote sounds suspiciously like the sort of thing that has been a constant refrain in, for example, the harassment difficulties of the Roman Catholic Church.

"Maybe creating an alternative reality in which the organs of the state [were] all part of some wild conspiracy against him [Salmond], for reasons I can't explain, maybe that's just easier than accepting at the root of all this might just have been issues in his own behaviour," she [Sturgeon] said. "But that's for him to explain, if he ever decides to pitch up and sit in front of the committee."

As far as I can tell the Labour party gave up on that whole opposition business, so Scottish independence struggles are basically the only thing left that could politically embarrass the Tories. So now the SNP went from a picture of competence compared to Jeremy Corbyn's Labour to "scandal plagued". Funny how that happens.
Like so:

Also anyone remember Galloway?
