Humza Yousaf, SNP transport minister, recently admitted: "I'm no transport expert".
It would seem Humza Yousaf has excelled himself once again. Yesterday he tweeted: "Scot Tories criticse ScotGovt saying cameras being used as 'cash cow' - not realising money from speed camera fines goes to UK treasury...".
Humza Yousaf was very quickly put right by Fraser Whyte @FraserWhyte81: "Speeding fines are devolved by s67 of the Scotland Act 2016? Now go straight to the Scottish Consolidated Fund, to be spent by SootGov".
Fraser Whyte copied screen grabs of the relevant legislation.
We cannot see any retraction or acknowledgement from Humza Yousaf regarding Mr Whyte's tweet.
Showing how blinkered SNP politicians are, Councillor Mhairi Hunter retweeted Mr Yousaf's tweet commenting: "Tories aren't very good at facts". Again, we cannot see any retraction of this tweet.
Once again it would seem SNP politicians have no idea what has been devolved to them.
Is this another case of incompetence or wilful spreading of lies?
Kirsty Blackman: “I don’t think most folk in their daily lives give two hoots about whether Scotland is a member of the union. The constitutional issues are not the biggest concern for an awful lot of people and, in fact, I very rarely talk about Scottish independence in the chamber, because I talk about things that matter to the people of Aberdeen."
It is being reported that Serena Cowdy, the woman allegedly involved in a love triangle with Stewart Hosie and SNP MP Angus MacNeil, is to marry Hosie after a Christmas proposal.
Serena Cowdy, 36, reportedly had affairs with MacNeil and Hosie - which led to both mens marriages coming to an end. Stewart Hosie was married to Shona Robison.
Civic & Joyous Nationalism at its very best!

EU Withdrawal: Irritable Bill SyndromeBy: Kevin Hague / chokka blog The EU Withdrawal Bill is currently being eased through the bowels of Westminster, digested by the Houses of Commons and Lords, inched forward by the peristalsis of readings, committees and amendments. The question of where repatriated powers should lie and how this impacts the devolution settlements is clearly going to be a cause of irritation as the Bill forms. Nobody expects this to be a smooth passage.
The Little University on the PrairieBy: Lily of St. Leonards Apparently there is a plan in Scotland to pay students £8000 per year to study. Scottish students already have their fees paid by the taxpayer. The idea now is that they should be paid the equivalent of the "living wage" to study.
