Alex Salmond Reported To Police Over Alleged Sexual Assault

Alex Salmond had been reported to police over allegations he sexually assaulted two staff members whilst First Minister, with one incident allegedly occurring inside the First Minister’s official residence.

In a statement posted on twitter, the Russia Today presenter and former First Minister of the Scottish Government alleged that that he was “unlawfully” being subject to a complaints procedure that had been introduced “more than three years after I left office”. Consequently he is suing the Scottish Government conveniently meaning he is “bound to say nothing which would impinge on the Court proceedings”. He has rejected all the complaints against him, calling some “patently ridiculous”.

‘SNP Plot’ Could Ruin England Match for MPs

It’s Estimates Day in the Commons, a dull procedure by which MPs formally consider estimates of future spending by government departments. This isn’t particularly controversial and most estimates are ‘rolled-up’ to minimise the number of votes – often there aren’t any votes at all.

SNP Leader Kicked Out of Commons

The SNP’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford deliberately gets himself suspended from the Commons with a naff stunt at PMQs. The rest of the Nats then walked out in protest as Bercow floundered and completely lost control. Oh well. Bye!

SNP Overriding Devolution Settlement to Impose Westminster Policy

It isn’t just the hypocrisy of Margaret Hodge that has been exposed by her attempt to force public ownership registers on UK overseas territories. The SNP are backing her amendment to override the devolution settlement of another territory and impose this “colonialist” policy from Westminster. At the same time as opposing the EU Withdrawal Bill on the grounds that Scotland didn’t vote for Brexit. Seems the Nats’ commitment to devolution stops at the coast of the UK…

Ofcom Probing Salmond For Peddling Fake News

Ofcom has launched a probe into Alex Salmond’s new Russia Today show. The regulator will look into a series of tweets Salmond read out on his programme which were presented as comments from the public but turned out to be from fabricated or planted sources, as Guido reported at the time. One was sent from an account owned by an RT producer. An Ofcom spokeswoman said:

“We are investigating whether this programme breached our rules on due accuracy.”

Inevitable…
