Bloated SNP Government
I thought Nicola Sturgeon's job creation scheme for two unnecessary Green ministers was bad enough, but the FM has lost the plot altogether with the news her government has a new Dugs Minister.

Job Creation and Green Ministers (June 14, 2022)
While 40,000 job losses are expected in the public sector over the next four years it's a veritable boom time for Green jobs in the Scottish Government.
Nicola Sturgeon deliberately created two new ministerial roles out of thin air last year - complete with all the usual trappings of big £100,000 plus salaries, extra staff and chauffeur driven cars.
Now this doesn't look good - it looks as if the Greens have been bought in return for their loyal support on contentious policies such as self-ID and making changes to the Gender Recognition Act.
And it looks especially bad at a time when Scotland's public sector is facing horrendous jobs losses as a result of the latest SNP spending review.
