All over the Scottish press this weekend is the news about David McLetchie and the ‘TaxiGate’ affair and this morning is no different.
All of the party chiefs in Scottish Parliament, including the dodgy First Minister Jack McConnell, have come out saying that they will start throwing taxi receipts around like confetti so that everyone, their grandmother and their respective dogs can read them.
With everyone trying so hard to out the Conservative Party leader it seems strange to neophytes like us that McLetchie just doesn’t come out and show them if he is so sure that everything is above board. We covered this a while ago when the story first broke in the Herald – McLetchie, show us the bills, June 14th.
Because of information received by us here at EdinburghSucks!com coupled with the fact that McLetchie is even losing the support of his conservative parliamentary colleagues, we are beginning to wonder whether the ‘TaxiGate’ saga is really about flying trips to Tods Murray at Queens Street of if there is in fact another address which would not only hurt the MSP politically but also personally.
For the moment, we are holding the cards close to our chest but when the wash is finally over and all the rinses complete, don’t be surprised if you get a surprise about a years old open secret and this is the real reason the taxi receipt confetti is falling.
