Scottish Parliament in Row over Haggisgate

Priorities. Priorities.

Political rivals are demanding the resignation of Scotland's justice minister after he decided to skip a major national conference on knife crime in favour of a trip to Canada to attend a series of haggis suppers celebrating the birthday of the famed 18th-century Scottish poet Robbie Burns.

So, without even a hint of irony, the opposition knives are out for the justice minister.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Cabinet Secretary of Justice in the Scottish parliament, Kenny MacAskill --

In the previous parliament, didn't he serve for a time as the Minister of Silly Walks?
