That`s taken a while. It`s over two months since they arrested and released Murrell and Beattie. It`ll give the media a chance to show their pics of the tents in her garden again.

That`s almost two years Police Scotland have been investigating this and they still haven`t found a `smoking gun`. If there was fraud going on it must have been extremely subtle to avoid detection for so long?

Where`s your proof ? Or is it wishful thinking.

I`ve supported independence since 1974 and thought I`d see independence in my lifetime but sadly like many others I feel the mismanagement of the SNP since November 2014 will deny me that opportunity. That`s where my bitterness stems from, very few of us never seen the total corrupt behaviour of the party leaders until it was to late. Some still cannot accept it`s not going to happen in their lifetime.

I`m referring to the police investigation into their financial affairs, not political matters. I`ve said before I can`t understand how the auditors gave their accounts a clean bill of health if misappropriation of funds was going on. We`ll just have to wait and see but if they come up with nothing the amount of time and public money spent on this will no doubt be questioned.

The nuSNP seem to be good at spending money and time wasting trying to jail innocent individuals, I think the compensation payout to one individual alone was £512,000 never mind the police time interviewing 400 people to find the accused innocent.

Most people in Scotland want what is best for the nation whether than nationalism, unionism or anything else in-between. This is an active investigation and few know the truth. Obviously there are far worse (alleged) scandals but they`re unrelated to the party responsible for running Scotland.

There`s an interesting change here IMO where the SNP were seen as being the party that represented Scotland best whether you wanted independence or not. Now cracks are beginning to show and there are questions from nationalists around the SNPs lack of focus on independence. Alba are not a viable alternative right now and the likes of Labour, Lib Dems and Tories (lol) don`t really seem to have any solutions to solving big issues around social care, deprivation and education.

The SNP have failed on education IMO but then things are worse in England in terms of things like deprivation. Does the buck stop with the SNP or are they doing the best they can given the funding they get, which is based on a UK budget? Who knows? I`m not hopeful of any UK political parties. All seem like crooks these days.

the same, life expectancy lower, England in top five internationally for reading standards in schools, don’t know where we are as Scot gov concealed it by withdrawing from International inspections, and no, deprivation is worse in Glasgow than anywhere else in the UK

That`s being quite selective and also incorrect in some cases.

Levels of deprivation in England are far worse, even in the prosperous south. Glasgow has an unacceptable level of 29% but it`s not the highest in the UK. Places like Middlesbrough and Liverpool are close to 50%!

Life expectancy is marginally higher in England, BUT healthy life expectancy (the years in which you live a healthy life) is longer in Scotland. Essentially, you die quicker once falling ill in Scotland. Whether that`s a good or bad thing is subjective.

Education is an interesting one. Scotland is generally lower depending on the subject, but it`s again marginal and the argument in favour of Scottish education is it gives students a more rounded experience. Again, subjective as to a good or bad thing to be more "generalist".

Spending per head is 17% higher but that`s at a national level Scotland`s funding is broadly in line with that of London (per head) despite London having none of the geographic challenges and a far lower challenge in terms of demographics (e.g. an older population creating a significant social care burden).

Anyway, this isn`t an England Vs Scotland debate. Both have their good and bad qualities. The question is about the running of Scotland. Was it better under Labour? Not really. Would it be better under Labour or Lib Dems after the next election? Not a clue.

Genuinely funny to see Parboiled refer to anybody as dim - the auld Brit git superiority complex shining through!

I have no idea what`s gone on with the SNP finances in honesty, but I do think it`s really odd that a two year police investigation appears to have yielded hee haw. The most likely conclusions would be that either there is nothing to be found or the investigators are biased and/or incompetent. That said, if there is some kind of embezzlement that has gone on then those responsible

Having taught and done my teacher training in England (Middlesbrough & Darlington to be exact), I can tell you that Scotland has it FAR better than England. Tbh, I would go as far as saying that Scots should really be grateful for how much the Scottish Government has protected them from the Tory policy in England. The two schools I was in were run by Trusts, the chief executives of which were on £184k per year each, which could fund 5-6 teachers. About 8% of the funding in each of these schools was filtered away to the trusts to pay the salaries of the executives in the trust and teachers were not guaranteed to progress up the pay scale as they are in Scotland. Many schools also refuse to hire teachers who are on the higher tiers because they`re too expensive and the trusts have that level of discretion. Always interesting to see who the execs of the Trusts are and you`ll find a number of prominent Labour and Tory donors. Now, just consider that this is also going on in the English NHS Trusts and just imagine...

The thing I could never get my head around though was the absolute apathy and acceptance of the situation in England. The lack of oomph to do anything about it was what really convinced me that Scots and English are completely different people with different mentalities. Look at Scotland now, where people are quite rightly questioning what is going on in Public Services on a rather grand scale.

The SNP have absolutely been guilty of poor management: (i) they never should have messed with the education system as it worked fairly well when they came in (ii) the national services rather than regional services. These would be the main two that come to mind. That said, I see very little creativity on the part of the SNP or the opposition for ways to fix these issues. Why are MSPs not looking at the Danish student work experience schemes? The Australian TAFE trade courses? The Estonian and Finnish education policy? Dutch and Nordic policies on start up companies? Portuguese Drug policies?

I genuinely think one of the biggest issues in Scotland is that very few have lived in other countries and seen properly how they function and therefore don`t know what is actually possible.

Now, now, Parboiled. You are being naughty again. Go into that corner and face the wall...

I was fascinated by HJ`s description of the trust system he had witnessed in English schools, his highlighting of the appalling wastage, and the comparison with the management of the NHS. It reminded me of the disastrous Tory obsession with privatisation. Short-term gain for long-term pain is a "sugar hit" that provides a brief boost that`s quickly replaced by a throbbing headache.

And I thank him for mentioning the Australian TAFE trade courses, which I think are admirable and present an excellent model for Scotland or any country seeking to maximise its education dollar.

In recent years, particularly post-pandemic, "tradies", as we call them over here, have seen their salaries shoot through the roof due to growing demand. Most of them will have come through the TAFE system or perhaps a combination of TAFE with a formal apprenticeship.

TAFE stands for Technical and Further Education. The system scoops up those who fail to meet the entry requirements for university but harbour ambitions beyond working in a minimum-wage fast-food environment. It is also available to people of all ages who want to change their careers or broaden their knowledge base.

It is relatively low cost and offers an enormous range of courses. I don`t know if there is anything similar in Scotland, but TAFE is a system well worth copying.

I was reading recently that wages in high-demand trades here in Australia, like carpenters, electricians, and plumbers, averaged A$160-190,000 a year in metro areas, bypassing by some way the average salaries of university graduates.

Oz - I only spent 9 months or so in Aus travelling and working but I have to say I was really impressed by the sheer number of courses you could do with the TAFE System - everything from Cyber Security to Childcare to Welding. In Scotland there are NVQs but I think the scope of the subjects is a lot more limited than with TAFE.

Parboiled - I never thought about writing a memoir, but I do thank you kindly for the suggestion and I guess I can rest assured that it would be more interesting than anything that you could produce.

After almost two years, three `arrests` and no charges made, it seems the cost of the police investigation to date now exceeds the amount of c£600,000 allegedly `missing` from the SNP`s accounts. Can we expect the opposition parties to raise the matter of value for money to the public at this week`s FMQs?

It should be investigated regardless of cost but it does seem like this has gone on for an awfully long time without any clear indication of uncovering anything. Obviously it could be that they are following a genuine positive line if enquiry that can`t be made public.

Being honest, I`m a lot more interested in what Michelle Mone did with MY money than what Nicola Sturgeon (allegedly) did with the money of SNP members. More fool them if they want to give the SNP money!

The police investigation also serves as a deterrent to would-be fraudsters. So you’d have to take into account the money saved in the future.

Also, consider the entertainment value. The Netflix series House of Cards cost $5m per episode. This is good value in comparison.

`As a lawyer said on radio the other day no one knows exactly what it is the police are investigating.`

An interesting point, but in the world of Kafka everyone is guilty until proved innocent. And if Sturgeon had her way, this would have involved the abolition of juries in sex offence cases so she can hardly complain. She is being hoist by her own petard as Hamlet put it, the one which was intended to demolish Alex Salmond, so I have no sympathy for her whatsoever.

Of course the sums involved are paltry- compare with Johnson`s or Hancock`s Covid franchises- and this is is not even public money. It is SNP money as I understand. Any financial irregularities are miniscule in the greater scheme of things. But if you live by the UK state rules then you will be demolished when suits, and that is what is happening to her. Hell mend her.
