It is gratifying to see that the T in the Park government handout is to be investigated by a Holyrood committee (your report, 16 September).
Some of us might have preferred £150,000 of taxpayers’ money to be used to ease the sufferings of refugees or aid the vulnerable in our society rather than boost the profits of a private company – regardless of whether the ministerial code was breached or not.
Nevertheless, if the investigation finds that the code was breached then the SNP would be guilty not only of a serious misdemeanour in the first place but also – since their own internal investigation cleared Fiona Hyslop – of an attempted cover up. Do we see an SNP T-gate in the making?
However, given that the investigation committee has five SNP members out of nine, what is the likelihood that the outcome will be – as has so often been the case in the past – a whitewash?
