Brass Necks, Public Money and Scottish Ministers


A reminder of the absurd, grotesque 'rules' which allow Scottish Ministers to voluntarily leave the government and Scottish Parliament for other well paid employment, yet still receive golden goodbye payments worth £75,000.

Brass Necks and Scottish Ministers (July 07, 2021)

I have to say I was shocked at Aileen Campbell's golden goodbye because it’s morally bankrupt to accept a payment of £75,000 when the former SNP minister is walking straight into another well paid job.

The alleged purpose of the payment is to help the person ‘adjust’ to their new life outside of politics and, perhaps, a period of unemployment.

Yet in Aileen's case there is no significant adjustment involved, so it's money for old rope.

Some say 'these are the rules', but that's exactly what some said about the Westminster MPs' expenses scandal and the fact is that the SNP have presided over this nonsense for over 14 years.


Tacking Inequality, Sturgeon and the SNP (July 07, 2021)

What a strange way the SNP has of tackling inequality - by giving people in well paid jobs large sums of public money (£75,000) they don’t need and haven’t earned.

Is this what Nicola Sturgeon means when she talks about SNP values?
