George Square prof in Holyrood dustup

Prof Drew Scott
Professor Andrew Scott is co-director of the Europa Institute, which is billeted at 21 George Square.  The Europa Institute studies EU law, policy and politics.

An economist, Professor Scott was called to a Holyrood committee examining the Scotland Bill, because of some of his research was deemed relevant to devolution of powers.  His examination was, ahem, rigorous from MSPs Wendy Alexander and David McLetchie as they probed the oft quoted research.

Now Professor Scott and a colleague have complained to the Presiding Officer about their treatment.

In another twist Alex Salmond is accused of doctoring quotes of the research.
