Among them was Chief Constable Sir Stephen House, who said he had apologised for giving incorrect information to the police watchdog over stop and search statistics.

This is something that can only happen in Holyrood.

I don't think they should be called native American at all. They immigrated from Asia, as did others, some from Europe, some from Africa etc.

No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation with detail.
