The second disaster to befall the Scots this week is the forced resignation of John Scott, Chief Executive of the 2014 Commonwealth Games:
GLASGOW’S Commonwealth Games chief executive has resigned after he admitted failing to declare an offer he received from a potential supplier.
John Scott quit his £180,000-a-year post yesterday after making an “error of judgment” by breaching strict rules on potential conflicts of interest set out in the Glasgow 2014 committee’s gifts and gratuities policy.
The Herald understands Strathclyde Police will today discuss the specific circumstances of Mr Scott’s departure with the 2014 organising committee.
The organisation is under growing pressure to reveal the identity of the supplier and the nature of the offer. It has refused to do so on the grounds they are “private and commercially sensitive”.
So even in Scotland things are not as quite as rosy as what we in Wales think!
