I've watched that for 2 hours (albeit multitasking as I'm working too) and I'm still none the wiser on what the potential resigning offence is. Sturgeon looked particularly uncomfortable and waffly when asked about having told a porky to Baillie and Rennie in parliament last week - is it that?

Me too, still have it on and have not seen where the offense had occurred?

I've grown to quite like Sturgeon so I'm aware that I might have an unconscious bias but I just find it weird that no-one seems to be able to spell out in simple terms what she's supposedly done. Not even the anti-SNP brigade on here!

It's Unionists spinning a narrative through social media/MSM, they are desperate ahead of a election.

I am the same and she has acquitted herself well so far today too. I have to say Cole Hamilton comes over as a slimy bugger.

I think it's more than 'unionists' Mandy? There is a massive schism in the SNP now.
Nah Unionists spun a narrative through there chums that Sturgeon was guilty before she'd even appeared in front of the committee and had her word, I don't think that's fair, they wouldn't act the same way if it was anyone else especially a man, u can't remember them doing the same with Hancock or Johnson. It's a witch hunt, I think there was failings at levels below Sturgeon that she wasn't aware of at the time, Evans and Wolfe certainly.

Not been watching this morning, will catch up with things later on.

What she is being accused of is breaking the ministerial code by lying to parliament about what she knew. The failure to release documents as evidence which the committee had requested in time, and only vital evidence were released yesterday when a threat of No Confidence vote was going to force John Swinney out of his job. That evidence apparently showed a different take on things to what she had previously told parliament.

I don't think she did lie to parliament personally, but that is the charge. If it is found she did lie, then she will have to resign.

I had to go on a call so have missed the last half hour but if I picked it up correctly she addressed the point about lying to Baillie and Rennie straight after the break with a quote from the official record?

Missed it as I was on a call too. I think there is more on that this afternoon?

I'm not sure if that point was the main one about lying in parliament, as Baillie seemed to be referring to something that only happened last week. I assume there's another alleged lie from somewhere further in the past? Maybe that's what will be picked up this afternoon.

Does anyone know anything about the spiked story claim?
Never heard anything of this before other than the usual rumours on relationships that every high profile person seems to attract. There's some chatter that there is a super injunction but I've never seen anything to make me think this is true or untrue.

Sturgeon's opening statement this morning was excellent, just the right amount of humility, anger and a couple of well placed shots at Salmond's integrity
Notice she had her opening statement in big print so she didnt have to wear her glasses.

That way you could see the tears

Baillie made her mind up before the committee even begun, she's far from impartial and I'd compare her to a fat orange Lodge member. She's repeating conspiracy theories with no substance.
This is something that I wonder if I'm really naive.

The snp members are throwing up easy dollies, whereas the the non snp members are really going for her personally.

I'm not sure that is the best scrutiny for the two women that were failed in this process.
