The Truth Hurts.

"Scotland's top civil servant has become embroiled in a row over political bias after saying the SNP was elected because of public discontent at a widening poverty gap and other problems under Labour. Sir John Elvidge, the Scottish Government’s permanent secretary, said the creation of Holyrood highlighted the poor state of health, education, and poverty north of the border under two Labour-led coalitions. Sir John’s comments, made in a professional journal, have been criticised for appearing to breach the protocol which requires civil servants to avoid becoming involved in party political issues."

The truth does hurt, but when is Sir John due to retire?
