Re: Will Scotland Leave the UK?

Entertainingly James Matthews at Sky has been sitting on the following gem since 2017:

While embarrassing for the email exchanges to be made public by mistake they aren't particularly out of the ordinary. A seperate freedom of information request lodged in 2018 and published by the Scottish Government acknowledges the role of Special Advisors (and Ministers) in the clearance process prior to responding.

That said the average reader/viewer would probably consider it overly complex I'm sure no journalist, ever, has sought to trip up a Minister by reading to them outputs from a freedom of information on television.

So while it reads juicy the reality is much more mundane.
