The powerful Scottish National Party Crime Syndicate that has dominated organised crime in much of Scotland for the last decade, is understood to be looking to make itself completely legitimate within the next five years.
They currently run extortion and protection rackets in most of the country’s towns and cities and have huge amounts of power within business and politics through their use of bribery, intimidation and corruption.
However, it appears that some of the top capos within the Scottish National Party Crime Syndicate believe that it won’t be possible to sustain the organisation if it continues to be based entirely on criminal activity.
“As we understand it, the pressure is coming from Mikey ‘Face’ Matheson, who’s one of the organisation’s leading consiglieres,” explained Detective Simon Williams, a renegade cop who doesn’t play by the rules but, dammit, he gets results.
“He knows that organisations like this, they don’t last, and so he’s pushing to get the entire SNP operating legally and legitimately.”
However, the problem the Scottish National Party Crime Syndicate has is with their new leader Hamza ‘Knuckles’ Yousaf.
“Yeah, that guy? He’s old-school SNP. He came up during the previous regime when the SNP were all-powerful and untouchable. Been into extortion, violence, and corruption all his life. He doesn’t know any different, and he knows that by going legitimate, the party will take a financial hit which is, for him, for the whole lot of them, the worst thing imaginable.
“But, you know, from what we’re hearing, it seems like Matheson may be swinging opinion, and we could see the party attempting to start operating within normal, legal parameters for the first time in nearly fifty years.”
However, with a litany of crimes from the reign of Nicola ‘The Sturgeon’ Sturgeon now being uncovered by police, the Scottish National Party Crime Syndicate could face legal prosecution long before it gets a chance to make itself legitimate.
