The Justice minister has said that there will be no enquiry in to Police Scotland's illegal spying controversy.
Yet curiously the First Minister wasted no time publicly criticising David Cameron's Government the very minute she discovered GCHQ were illegally spying on us.
So why the difference?
The conclusion is as obvious as it is disturbing I'm afraid.
Police Scotland were spying on us in some cases for and on behalf of the Scottish Government.
Bear in mind that it is the Scottish Government who choose and appoint the Lord Advocate to run the Crown office and boss the Police. So the Lord Advocate Frank 'I'm anything but frank' Mulholland is nothing more than a Government mouthpiece and stooge.
Therefore the reason there will be no enquiry in to this farce is because it would be very embarrassing if the First Minister were to ask the Lord Advocate and untrustworthy Police Scotland why they conducted illegal spying on our citizens and the reply was 'because you told us to...'
