Bugging the Nats

This Sunday Supplement concerns the sensitive issue of politicians and the scrutiny of their activities.

The revelation that a Labour MP Sadiq Khan was bugged while visiting a constituent in a prison revived memories of a period when one group of politicians felt they were constantly under surveillance by the security services.

Members of the Scottish National Party have been telling the political commentator of Scotland's Sunday Herald, Iain McWhirter, why they believe they were being watched and listened to long before the party came to power.

So here is Iain McWhirter in Bugging the Nats.
