It's Criminal.

So, "ONE of the country's leading criminologists is urging academics to boycott Scottish Government research, claiming it is too often "spun" to justify flawed policies. Reece Walters has accused civil servants in Scotland of manipulating research to meet the political objectives of the governing party, and blocking the publication of "undesirable" findings."

Never. Government selectively using research to "justify flawed policies." It would never happen in Scotland ... could it? And Mr Smith suspects it happens as much now as it ever did with any previous Scottish Government administration.

Coincidentally, Mr Smith noticed job adverts in the weekend press from the Scottish Government for ... you guessed it "Researchers."
