Government By Gang - Scotland's 'Pretendy' Parliament
Disrespectful SNP ministers obstructed a parliamentary inquiry into a £2 billion skills strategy that failed to help young people find jobs, a cross-party committee has found.https://t.co/9tFu7Cm0d3— TimesEditorScotland (@magnusllewellin) March 29, 2022
The Scottish Parliament seems more and more like a 'pretendy' parliament these days with MSPs seemingly unable to hold powerful ministers to account.
Strangely this would not happen in the House of Commons because the committee system is far stronger and operates more independently of government.
With the unholy alliance between the SNP and Greens Holyrood has been reduced to a toothless tiger which ministers regularly bypass and treat with casual contempt.
For example, the infamous 'ghost ferries' announcement on Ferguson's shipyard was made at an SNP conference - not to MSPs and the Scottish Parliament.
