Scottish parliamentarians exempt from public scrutiny?
There are moves afoot, probably sponsored by labour MSPs to have their
private lives categorically exempt from freedom of information scrutiny.
This is UNLIKE the approach taken by Blair in Westminster.
the public HAS A RIGHT to make sure its representatives are being honest
and forthright in all aspects of their lives because a vote is a vote and
the MSP concerned must bear the burden of representing that vote.
