With investigations over the patronage offered to former SNP PPC, Osama Saeed’s failed quango still ongoing, the SNP have been accused of further use of public finances and trappings of Government for party political purposes.
The proposed venues are Isle of Bute, Kilmarnock, Stirling and Dornoch. The first three are in marginal constituencies which the SNP took with precarious majorities in the 2007 Holyrood elections, and the fourth is seen as part of a target seat during the upcoming 2011 Holyrood elections; with the retirement of incumbent, LibDem Jamie Stone.
Scotland, wha’ like us? None, thank fuck.
