Re: Permanent secretary suing the Government

Didn't he get Amber Rudd fired as well because he was shit?

Re: Krankie goes to Holyrood

This is great TV. She's denying everything and accusing Salmond and his solicitors of breaking the law.

Apparently she told the parliament that she wasn't aware before the 2nd, but she meant she was 'generally' aware, but not 'specifically' aware. So no lie, just a misunderstanding.
