Doubts on the "Veracity of what is said in this chamber"

Presiding officer orders inquiry into 'veracity' of SNP ministers - Scotsman.com News

Labour has been working on a "Pinocchio file" and the Liberal Democrats have been keeping a record of "mistruths".

Good to know someone worries about Ministers misleading a Parliament, even if it is only the Scotch one. But with Labour pointing the finger up there, motes and beams in eyes and stones and living in glass houses comes to mind down here...


Two things strike me from that report. Firstly you need an opposition with the balls/motivation/work ethic to construct such a list and then make a formal complaint.

Then you need a presiding officer (the Speaker) prepared to do his job rather than protect his political chums.
