Will The Lord Advocate Prosecute His Boss?

Police Scotland has received a number of complaints about donations made to the SNP.

It comes on top of Douglas Chapman quitting as SNP treasurer and Joanna Cherry quitting over the lack of financial information, transparency, and scrutiny.

So a formal investigation in to SNP finances has been launched. Police Scotland have said: "After assessment and consultation with the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service, we will now carry out an investigation".

So far so good. Sounds all above board doesn't it?

Hmmm, well, no, not if you look at how the organisations involved in this investigation are incestuously connected.

1. Police Scotland (who are conducting the investigation in to the SNP) take orders from their bosses at the COPFS.

2. The COPFS take orders from their boss, the Lord Advocate.

3. The Lord Advocate is appointed by the First Minister.

4. The First Minister is the head of the SNP (who are being investigated).

A five year old could join the dots.

So what's the chances the Lord Advocate will hold the party to account who gave him his £127,765 a year job?

Answers on a postcard please...
