... obviously the Scots are telling them where to go.

Am I the only one who thinks this is pretty breathtaking in the first place?

One Govt investigation the actions of another...

    I don't want to be pedantic but neither are a Government. One is a legislature and the other is a devolved administration ;)

    Point remains the same though.

    They're trying to undermine Scotlands, not the UK's. If Scotland want to play with the big boys and make their own decisions then they'll have to accept that they pissed off a lot of people when they released the bloke.

    But Scotland is not a sovereign country, even it has autonomy in some areas. The Westminster government still controls Scotland's foreign affairs, and that of all other constituent countries.

    So in a sense they are undermining UK sovereignty.

    They don't control their legal affairs though. The Scots have acted within the rules as it was their right.
