Scottish National Party in deep trouble

Police Scotland has arrested Nicola Sturgeon, who resigned as first minister of Scotland two months ago, as part of their investigation into allegations the SNP misspent £600,000 of donated money:

Her husband, Peter Murrell, the former chief executive of the SNP, was arrested at their home in Uddingston near Glasgow on 5 April, and interviewed under caution for nearly 12 hours before being released without charge.

The police searched their home and back garden, and also searched the SNP’s headquarters under warrant, taking out boxes of documents and computers.

Colin Beattie MSP, then the party’s treasurer, was arrested and questioned as part of the same inquiry on 18 April and also released later without charge, pending further investigation.

The BBC has a timeline of the investigation.

    In other news, Boris Johnson resigned late on Friday night, several days after receiving a copy of the investigation into his behaviour by the House of Commons Privileges Committee.  There is speculation that the committee recommended a suspension of more than ten days from the Commons, which would have left Johnson open to a recall petition and forced by-election.  The committee will meet today (Monday) to approve the report of its investigation, and may make that report public as early as Wednesday.
