Nice one Nicol!

Scottish Lib Dem Leader Nicol Stephen played a blinder at yesterday's First Minister's Questions in the Scottish Parly.

He suggested that the Scottish Government's involvement in trumpgate "smells of sleaze" and that " This is a serious situation for the first minister and his government. Every step of the way there is contradiction, concealment and cleverness from his government on this issue." He also called, justifiably, for an independent public inquiry into the issue.

I honestly believe that this has been the best direct hit on Eck and his government since they took power back in May and helps to prove the argument that with Labour being all over the shop, the Toris chumming up to the gnats and refusing to be an opposition at all, we in the Scottish Lib Dems are the real opposition to this gnat government.

Well done Nicol and more of the same please - it certainly puts heart into your troops.

Why didn't Mr Stephen post any hits on Wendy Alexander in the last few weeks? I would have thought that smelled rather more strongly of sleaze.

I belive that Nicol has commented on Wendy's woes. However, the SNP are in Government and as an opposition party it is our bounden duty to hold the "Government" to account and this is exactly what Nicol has been doing and doing well.
