We know huge amounts about Boris Johnson’s private life because it has been reported in newspapers. Nothing is hidden. If there is an attempt to hide someone in the civil service leaks or a vengeful former colleague goes to the press. But there is nothing like this in Scotland.

Ever since the SNP came to power in 2007, we have only ever seen what it wants us to see. The Scottish civil service wrote the SNP’s independence White Paper. There is no Scottish equivalent of Sue Gray who investigated Boris Johnson’s misbehaviour and then went to Labour. Can you imagine a Scottish  civil servant investigating Nicola Sturgeon and then joining the Conservatives?

During 2013 and 2014 when Alex Salmond was presented as a leader in waiting of an independent Scotland there were no leaks about his alleged misbehaviour in Bute House. No one saw anything, no one heard anything, and no one told anything. We had to wait three years until 2017 when there was a secret investigation that eventually led to a trial where Salmond was acquitted.
