Ex first minister McLeish gave cash to non-existent charity

For two years henry Mcleish (as leader of Fife council) authorised the donation 20,000 to the Third Age Group after it had ceased to exist. This charity was partly controlled by McLeishes wife.

Now this is being audited. It may be that McLeish is innocent and the victim of a scam, or it may be he ends up like a certain notable Tory author.

Whatever the case, it shows the corruptness at the heart of the labour party in Scotland, and shows they have no respect for the people they claim to represent.
