fits-move.16833698). "THOUSANDS of sick and disabled Scots and their families will lose out under UK Government benefit reforms, according to new figures published by Citizens Advice Scotland (CAS). For the first time, a report by the agency reveals the likely impact of transferring tens of thousands of Scots claimants off incapacity benefit (IB) or severe disablement allowance (SDA) and on to the new Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)." "Outcry after Salmond and Murdoch talk", Herald Scotland 1 March 2012 ( "ALEX Salmond has been accused of 'inappropriate and ill-advised' behaviour after hosting a meeting at his official residence with News Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch. […] Anas Sarwar, deputy leader of Scottish Labour, said: 'Given the revelations at the Leveson Inquiry and the row over the referendum date, this was an inappropriate and illadvised meeting for the First Minister. The scandal that has engulfed News International has shocked the public, and the thought of the First Minister enjoying a cosy cup of tea with Rupert Murdoch will not be well understood.'" "Grim view of Scottish tourism industry", Scotsman 5 March ( 2153406): "SCOTTISH tourism is being let down by poor-quality service, run-down accommodation and too many business owners who are 'in it for themselves', industry leaders have warned. Ahead of Scottish Tourism Week, which starts today, senior figures have warned that urgent action is needed to change the image of tourism as a 'subservient' career. Guest-house and B&B owners have been accused of using their businesses as extra pension pots to fall back on. Toilet facilities in pubs and bars have been branded embarrassing. And there are concerns many hoteliers may cut back on investment and training in the next couple of years in order to survive." "Massive city-centre traffic shake-up approved", Scotsman 5 March ( "EDINBURGH is on course for the biggest shake-up of its road system since the notorious city-centre traffic management scheme which had to be largely abandoned after a public outcry. Councillors have approved plans to review one-way systems in the West End and city centre as part of a wider strategy to create a more pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly environment." "National Theatre forms partnership with China", Herald Scotland 8 March 2012 ( "SCOTLAND'S growing relationship with China has moved to a more dramatic stage, with an official new partnership between the countries' national theatre companies. The National Theatre of Scotland (NTS) and the National Theatre of China are to launch a creative partnership that will see the first season of new writing from contemporary Chinese talent on show next year in the UK." "International ambitions of Edinburgh's festivals", Scottish Government 8 March 2012 ( "Artists and audiences attending Edinburgh's Festivals this year have reason to celebrate after an ambitious programme of additional world premieres, new commissions and international gatherings was given the green light. In a unique initiative, the major public funders of Edinburgh's Festivals – The Scottish Government, City of Edinburgh Council, EventScotland and Creative Scotland – have combined forces to agree an increased investment of £3.2 million into Edinburgh's Festivals 2012 programmes. As part of this, the Scottish Government is ex-

panding its Expo Fund for Edinburgh's Festivals this year, providing a total of £2.25 million in support." "Bank of Scotland guilty of serious misconduct", Scotsman 10 March 2012 ( 2164938): "BANK of Scotland was guilty of 'very serious financial misconduct' in the run-up to the collapse and £20 billion taxpayer-funded bailout of its parent company HBOS, according to a damning report by the City watchdog. The Financial Services Authority (FSA) said the division failed to 'take reasonable care to organise and control its affairs responsibly and effectively, with adequate risk management systems' before HBOS's demise in 2008." "Go wild in 2013, staycation Scots are urged", Scotsman 13 March 2012 ( "THE biggest campaign yet to showcase Scotland's natural beauty and spectacular landscapes is being lined up for next year. A bid to establish 2013 as 'the year the Scots discover their country' is being planned to showcase everything from isolated beaches and rugged mountains to sporting events and wildlife habitats. Led by VisitScotland, the campaign was prompted by research that found nature-based tourism was worth nearly 40 per cent of all visitor spending in Scotland." "PM's policy is immoral", Herald Scotland 30 April 2012 ( "THE leader of Scotland's Roman Catholic Church has unleashed a blistering attack on the UK Government's economic policy, branding it 'immoral', and reiterating the criticism of David Cameron that he is out of touch with the needs of ordinary people. Cardinal Keith O'Brien, the Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, said yesterday the Prime Minister was helping his 'very rich colleagues' in the City at the expense of the poorest in society and urged him to introduce a so-called Robin Hood Tax, a levy on share transactions, which, it is estimated, could raise £20 billion a year." "Head of Scottish civil service Sir Peter Housden branded 'SNP lackey'", Statesman 4 May 2012 ( "Scotland's top civil servant has been accused of acting like 'an SNP lackey' in a fierce attack on his political impartiality. In rare public criticism of a leading mandarin by all three opposition parties, Sir Peter Housden, the Scottish Government permanent secretary, was accused of 'failing to uphold' the impartiality of the civil service. The row came after Sir Peter rejected a complaint that an SNP minister breached guidelines by making a government announcement during the local election campaign. That ruling prompted Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie to accuse the senior civil servant of 'failing to take a balanced view' of complaints against the SNP government." "City to have a more inclusive administration", Herald Scotland 7 May 2012 ( "GLASGOW'S Labour administration will return to work tomorrow, amid mounting speculation over who will make up the council's top team and how they will deliver on a series of ambitious manifesto promises. Despite several years of internal turmoil in the city council's leadership, Friday's emphatic victory for Labour has generated talk of 'clean slates' within the administration and a thawing of relations between the authority's Gordon Matheson and opponents within his group."
