@StFilansDream raising the question of why endemic Tory corruption is given a free for all while all other UK political opposition are required to be cleaner than clean, even when the perceived errors reported are still not as extreme as comparable situations.
@StFilansDream replying with stats showing the scale of the issue
Below you can read just one of the recent articles targeting the SNP, as many people have also pointed out none of us disagree with politicians being held accountable but when Tory corruption gets a free ride – its as if the BBC was there to support the Tory party!
What the BBC reported >>
The in page URLs to other BBC stories just goes to show how much time and attention they are giving to this issue.
Businessman Jim McColl has said he would not have signed a £97m contract to build two CalMac ferries if he had known the extent of opposition to it.
The 2015 contract was approved by ministers despite concerns from their own ferries agency CMAL about the lack of the normal financial safeguards.
Mr McColl claims the deal with Ferguson shipyard was rushed through “for political capital”.
The Scottish government insists the deal was done to save hundreds of jobs.
After a series of problems, the ferries will now be five years late and could cost the taxpayer more than £250m.
Last week a damning report by Audit Scotland said it was unable to establish why the order was given to Ferguson without a normal builders refund guarantee because the decision had not been fully documented.
