Scottish independence: milking the public purse, Salmond’s Government hires another special adviser setting a new record of 14 spads at Holyrood, that brings the pay bill to £1m for Alex’s ‘pals’ and ‘comrades’ to get a turn at the trough

Dear All

One of the things that the Scottish National Party has settled into pretty quickly as a Government is milking the taxpayer of its cash.

Salmond's inept government is today due to take on its 14th special adviser.

As the fear increases, it’s all hands to the pumps to get as muany people to the trough before the end comes!

14 is a record number at Holyrood which comes with a  price tag of £1 million pounds.

Rightly the Labour Party has accused the Scottish Government of "using the taxpayer as their personal bank account" to promote ­independence.

Ross Ingebrigtsen has worked in the SNP's press office, so will be used to spinning, but he can’t sell independence, that’s a dead duck.
A Nationalist source confirmed that Mr Ingebrigtsen would begin his new job today and was not a replacement but an "additional" special adviser.

Doesn’t matter what he does, looking at his twitter, I am not impressed.

It seems that the heat is on for the SNP, but come the vote, Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond and Scotland’s unpopular D3eputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will be the ones getting their fingers burnt badly.

Tough job for the 'new' guy, how do you sell a man who is married to a woman old enough to be his mother and sound convincing when he has done nothing of real merit for working class Scots?

Yours sincerely
