Taxi For MacAskill ?
The abject failure of Scottish "Justice" Secretary, Kenny MacAskill, to intervene in the Hollie Greig case would surely have forced his resignation were it not for the virtual black-out of reporting in the mainstream media.
However his astonishing comments attacking the UK Supreme Court for attempting to uphold the human rights of Scottish citizens will surely end his political career.
What does the future hold for MacAskill ? Perhaps he and his business associates will expand their interests in the licensed trade in Eastern Europe ?
Or could he develop a new career as a taxi driver, regaling his punters with tales of how Scotland had the best legal system in the world ? Hollie Greig, Megrahi, Nat Fraser, Shirley McKie and many others may beg to differ.
