Should I be surprised that there has not been a peep on the Cowshed regarding this scandal, while it has been the main topic on every news channel, TV radio, newspaper since I first heard about it at 7.00 this morning? Not really. Two things are certain to me that if this had been Sajid Javid who had been exposed the day before the Budget to have groomed a schoolboy/schoolgirl, it would have been, with understandable outrage from all including the large number of Nationalists on the Bounce. Dirty Tory Paedo, sick Tory bastard etc,etc.
Secondly the timing by the Sun was clearly managed for maximum impact. Get used to it. I have been banging on about the continuous attacks on a daily basis on Corbyn and the left over the past few years. I warned on here that their attention would turn to the Scottish Government.

I dont know that there is much to debate. Looks like he's been guilty of being a dirty old git and he's had to step down because of it.

A pretty icky state of affairs but fairly open and shut. He's done something inexcusable so he's finished.

The most amazing thing about it is that he thought he could get away with it.

A beast is a beast regardless of politics,front page of the paper would be least of his worries if it was my kid.
Least he resigned i suppose,others have stayed on for worse.

Risking your career bizarre.
He never met the boy? I don’t know I haven’t read the transcripts
Not classy taking the info to the papers. I don’t really get that.

Thought he was caught grooming a 16 year old.Forgive me if I'm wrong but is the age of consent not 16?

In Scotland, a child legally becomes an adult when they turn 16, but statutory guidance which supports the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, includes all children and young people up to the age of 18.

Sounds bizarrely like you are defending him!

Its sometimes difficult to believe someone who is supposedly so intelligent and in the public eye can make such an utter arse of themselves.

The SNP chucked him out.

If other parties took a similar position they would have been pretty thin on the ground in the past and our current PM would have been toast!

That's not intended as whatabootery. Different parties have different starting points and different ways of achieving their ambitions.

Am I defending him?Seems to me the guy was grooming the 16 year old,which makes him a creep.But a beast?By that I take it it means a paedophile,as far as I can see it went no further than text messages,I'm glad it went no further and he has resigned.

How can a man is such high office behave like this and think he can get away with it ? To get to be Finance Minister in your country you have to be a fairly clever intelligent person you would have thought, but then to do something as vile as this ? He is finished in politics totally and I wouldn't be surprised if there were criminal investigations to follow.

He's finished, unemployable. I suspect if he wasn't able to fall back on his overly generous politicians pension he'd be on the streets before long.

I'd be surprised if there was a criminal investigation. There's no suggestion anything happened before the boy was 16, the age of consent in Scotland as far as I'm aware, so while creepy, not illegal.

True,maybe sexual predator is a better description.
Lets call him that.

The age of consent varies from country to country. Would it be ok to chat up a 12 year old in one of those countries? He's a supposedly mature adult who whilst maybe thinking 'he's cute' should know better.

He has not been chucked out as you put it, he has had the Whip withdrawn and membership of the SNP suspended pending the Party disciplinary procedure and due process. As it should be.

I can't think of anything much sleazier than asking folk he hardly knows if they have 'any naughty pics'.
Reprehensible behaviour.
Aye but he allegedly only asked one person. That's the difference.

SNP littered with scandal again

What a surprise
Is that the first thing that struck you? SNP?
For me it was
What an arsehole.
Had it been another MSP, MP, MEP, Councillor, regardless of party, my reaction would have been the same.
Whether you're a politician, royalty, or ordinary working stiff.
Wrong is wrong.
