Who Is The Mysterious UK Government Source?


Who is the mysterious UK government source who has criticised Alex Salmond for not attending a meeting of ministers from around the UK?

The Beeb has diligently published a UK government press release in an(other) effort to smear the First Minister.

The next Joint Ministerial Committee, which meets four times a year to discuss areas of mutual concern, is to meet in London.  The agenda is welfare reforms and the London Olympics.  Representing the Scottish government will be the Scottish government's secretary for parliamentary business and the minister for Commonwealth Games and sport Shona Robison.

Makes sense to have the ministers most closely connected to the subjects on the agenda doesn't it?

So who could the UK government source be?  Oh, I forgot to say the meeting will be chaired by the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

Alex will be too busy trying to sell us down river to the EU despots no doubt .... (in case he gains 'Independence')

Makes even more sense to have an English minister attending to put forward the English point of view. A Whitehall minister is merely a stooge of the Barnett subsidy status quo.

Why would anyone in their right mind want to go to a meeting chaired by Nick Clegg?

Especially if the now nauseatingly all-pervading damned Olympics are on the agenda.

A conference call would help save the planet from global warming from all that flying.
The BBC said the First Minister had no business at the leaders debates but it's essential he talk to Cleggie, the tories little helper, who swapped 'solemn pledges' for a comfy seat in a big limo.
Aye right.

I think Alex has a pre-booked lunch date that day :p

I do wish they'd revisit their EU policy Maverick. We can only live in hope.

It does indeed Brian.

JRB, your remarks about the Olympics made me smile. You're so right.

subrosa said...

Aye right indeed RM. Good to see Eck standing up to the bully boys.

I thought he was judging Scotland's pie making competition Barbarian, or was it haggis? Can't quite remember.

Alex Salmond I've heard of, but who's this Nick Clegg?
