In the wake of the current Pantsonfiregate controversy creating a snowball in a scorched earth’s chance of the Neverendum succeeding, the Scottish Government’s Star Chamber attempts some serious firefighting.

LIE LIMITS are to be cut on dozens of whoppers stretching across the political spectrum in Scotland.
A review of the ‘big lies’, ‘barefaced lies’, ‘wee white lies’ and out and out ‘whoppers’ is long overdue says the Parliamentary Lie Standard Committee.
The review, ordered two days ago, also proposed strict limits on the frequency and importance of the lies.
The Scottish Government will now go ahead with introducing the lie limit reductions.
The public and Minsters hope that the first of the new lie limits will be brought in by the end of Firstminster’s Questions.
However, any lie limit will rely on the cooperation of the opposition parties and is therefore expected to be interpreted ‘Liberally’.
The Government has already ruled out imposing lie limits on the subjects of Europe, Sterling and Nuclear weapons.
A Government spokesperson explained that these areas are considered too important to have the truth told about them.
“If the Government tells the truth about any of these subjects, independence is deid in the watter.” said an anonymous Wee Naebudy. “And that’s jist no happenin’, get a grip.”
Barefaced liar, fibber, evader, deceiver and official Government spokesperson Wee Naebudy said: “These limits will not be as severe as expected, Minsters have been briefed that they can be ‘economical with the truth’ any time they wish.
“Jist so long as it’s no a barefaced lie recorded by the anti-Scottish Unionist biased British Brainwashing Corporation.”
