Something Smells at the SPT

"The chairman of Scotland's largest transport authority has resigned following questions over expenses.

Alistair Watson, who is also a Glasgow Labour councillor, stood down from Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) on Monday for health reasons.   It comes after documents obtained under Freedom of Information showed SPT officials claimed more than £100,000 between 2006 and 2009."

Can someone answer this question for me?  Am I right in thinking a grand fromage from the SPT resigned or was found guilty of holding First Group shares about the time WorstGroup retained the Scot-rail franchise?

To lose one high ranking official to corruption is remiss, to lose a second some pople might think of it as endemic.
