This was to people who have been wondering where he was hiding since he gave Jackie Baillie MSP an ignorant shellacking about her drawing attention to the appalling situation in our care homes while Jonathan was under the bed.
“No administration that believes in a free media – and this government has repeatedly stood by that assertion – can then decide which media it will respond to and which not. The mark of a government that truly supports free media is one that steps up to the plate and answers questions from all sources even those it believes to be politically hostile.
