Aug 2021: The never ending growth in the numbers of Scottish Government SPAD’s – All paid for by Scottish Voters

Data released by the SNP led Scottish Government reveals that Nationalist ministers have 15 special advisers (SPAD’s) who will provide party political guidance for the 2021/22 financial year. 

Based on the 15 appointees, analysis shows collectively that the wage bill for SNP led Scottish Government staff is expected to be around £940,000 for the 2021/22 financial year.

However, an additional two special advisers are set to be appointed as a result of the cooperation deal struck between the Scottish Greens and the SNP.

Under the agreement, two special advisers will assist two new junior Green ministers and will be paid a salary of at least £41,000 per year taking the bill for 2021/22 above £1m.

Quietly included in the list is Liz Lloyd, who lost her job as Special Advisor to Sturgeon a few months ago only to taken back into the fold at the first opportunity in a specially created (for her) post as a “strategic adviser focused on long-term transformational policies for Scotland.” Indicators provide warning to the electorate that the WOKE agenda is to be pursued with a vengeance. point to the WOKE agenda. Two fingers to the electorate on that one.

Lloyd, along with permanent secretary Leslie Evans and SNP chief executive Peter Murrell, faced calls to resign earlier this year, following allegations, (which they denied to a Holyrood committee’s investigation ) that they were at the at the centre of inappropriate behaviour in the illegal handling of sexual misconduct allegations against former First Minister Alex Salmond.

Lloyd received more than £6,000 in legal advice relating to her conduct but failed to appear in front of the inquiry and instead submitted written evidence which could not be challenged.

At the time, the Sturgeon insisted she had full confidence in her Special Advisor however just a week ago she announced Lloyd (no reason given) had been dismissed from her “Chief of Staff” position.

Colin McAllister, now holds the title “Chief of Staff”.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has been pressured to act on alleged breaches of the civil service code by her special advisers.

Don’t lose heart, Jock . While Scots are very tolerant of trans rights they will draw the line at ideological activism.

Eventually, this nonsense will be the undoing of Sturgeon.

Unfortunately this corruption stoked by Sturgeon, a noted liar, can not in any circumstance be viewed simply as ‘nonsense’. Scotland and the Scots are being thrown to the wolves at Westminster by a narcissistic First Minister emboldened by a fawning SNP collective of spineless charlatans devoid of principle and moral compass.

Liz Lloyd is a truly grotesque individual. She said the committee declined to hear her private evidence but what she never bothered to mention in that submission was that she would only give private evidence providing she would not be asked certain questions and the committee members had to sign up to that in advance. She should be in jail.

Aye John, her and Sturgeon, however we should not forget the role played by Linda Fabiani and her committee of tamed inquisitors in ensuring the presupposed sanctity of the Queen B.

Fabiani: A carefully selected, placidly hostile leader of the investigation that never was. No friend of Alex Salmond. Indeed a study of the participating investigators revealed all had political and personal axes to grind against him.
