Size doesn’t matter for Scottish economic success. Scotland’s population is similar to that of Norway and Denmark, both in the IMF’s list of the top 10 richest in the world. So when Sturgeon says there is no reason why an indy Scotland could not make it on its own after independence she is right. theguardian.com/business/…

Weighing 240 lbs, measuring 6'10" long, and a girth of nearly 4'. Caught in the Detroit River, it's one of the largest lake sturgeon ever recorded in the U.S. Based on its girth and size, it is assumed to be a female and that she has been roaming our waters over 100 years. She was released afterward

The "Sturgeon misled Parliament" headlines are based on nothing more than a minor semantic quibble

I've seen a lot of confusion recently about how Sturgeon "misled" the Parliament. Here is the Committee's logic:

  1. In her written submission to the Committee, Sturgeon wrote that she had "made it clear" to Salmond that she would not intervene in the investigation.

  2. There is no dispute within the Committee that Sturgeon fully believed she had "made it clear" to Salmond that she wouldn't intervene.

  3. However, Salmond left the meeting under the impression that she might intervene.

  4. Since Salmond misunderstood Sturgeon, she didn't actually make her position "clear" - even though she fully believed that she had been clear.

Yes, that's literally it.

It's nothing more than an overly pedantic interpretation of a common phrase.

If you ever hear a politician tell Parliament "I have made my position clear on this key policy area," simply find one person - even if like Salmond they're not an elected representative - who misunderstood that politician, and now that politician has misled Parliament.
