Scottish Parliament: Bye Bye SSP, Hello Snouts Nats

Mr Eugenides, the tartan Tory blogger points at MSP Expenses with the late lamented SSP's Frances Curran, Rosie Kane and Carolyn Leckie (above) topping the poll. Picture: Scotsman/Andrew Stuart

The Scotsman has more and some rollicking commentary. But Eugenides says it is one of the ruling snouts Nats causing most concern:

"The books put on expenses revealed an insight into the research of some of the MSPs. Jim Mather, the enterprise minister, right, spent money on Statistics for Dummies and Statistical Analysis and Excel for Dummies."

This could be to deal with his day job? Or perhaps to try and squirrel away the third of a million pounds worth of shares he has burning a hole in his credibility?
