Spirit evaporates (Robert Wishart)

The disgraceful decision of the Public Standards Commissioner is no surprise despite the warning of the controller of audit for the Accounts Commission for Scotland: “It is crucial that councillors adhere to the spirit, as well as the letter, of the relevant codes of conduct and behaviours.”

Although it is no more than many folk suspected it’s a fix; and it stinks.
