During questions with the first minister in Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon was taken to task over the covering up of evidence by Conservative MSP Ruth Davidson.
Ruth Grilled the First Minister of Scotland for nearly 10 minutes. Nicola hit back using the term “Conspiracy Theory” as cover, but what was glaring to see was the sheer depth the First Minister went to keep certain aspects of the evidence given by the former First Minister Alex Salmond out of the realm of questioning.
After the questioning, news reporters reported that when uncovering the redacted parts of the evidence from Mr Salmond, the redacted words were around whether the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was untruthful to the Scottish Parliament.
With a specific part of the evidence redacted, it means Sturgeon cannot be questioned around the truthfulness of her past statements made in Holyrood. This means Sturgeon will not have to be held accountable on the redacted part of Salmond’s evidence.
Whether Sturgeon told any untruths, there remains a strong whiff of a cover-up through redacting evidence so questions can’t be asked.
What’re your thoughts on this? Is this a cover-up, or a coincidence that the very details that would damage Sturgeon before an election was randomly redacted?
