This argument is not without merit, but does not go far enough. Surely it is an argument that could equally apply to Alex Salmond, Nicola Sturgeon and John Swinney et al. After all, are they not politicians, too? Is Mr Kelly suggesting that only Westminster politicians are untrustworthy and that those who officially represent the SNP are the exception to the rule?
Personally, I am very wary of all politicians. I do not think that Westminster has a monopoly on the use of weasel words and obfuscation.
