Six years ago, editors in Scotland and London responded to the new parliament by dramatically increasing their political staff. Papers with one correspondent suddenly needed two or three. Once the parliament met, old hands from Westminster encouraged a pack mentality. "People expected it to be constantly sexy, exciting, glamorous and noisy and, of course, it isn't," says Iain Martin, who covered the early years and now edits Scotland on Sunday. "It's a devolved parliament serving something over five million people. That quickly led to there being a lot of bored journalists around who quickly turned into attack dogs."
