Not for the first time, I am indebted to Cynical Highlander for pointing me in the direction of information I'd have otherwise missed.
In the last post a letter form Nicola Sturgeon noted that she was off to Eire on a visit. While there she met with the Irish Minister for European Affairs, Lucinda Creighton. After their meeting Ms Creighton gave an interview to the BBC, in which she appeared to give the impression that there was a difference of opinion between the Irish and Scottish governments, on Scotland's future within the EU.
The Irish Minister was clearly so concerned by the spin that the BBC had put on the interview that she emailed the Deputy First Minister today, and Nicola has published her communication (with Ms Creighton's permission).
Of course in diplomatic language a minister cannot say: "your state broadcasters are a bunch of lying *******s", but she did say that she was concerned that the interview wasn't giving the impression that she intended it to give.
I wonder what coverage the Minister for European Affairs' letter will get in BBC coverage. Not a great deal I suspect.
I'm sure that Ms Creighton wouldn't object to the letter getting the biggest coverage possible, so if you have a blog and you want to put the letter on it...
