The First Minister faced an angry backlash at Holyrood as efforts to block an order from Scotland's information commissioner, Rosemary Agnew, con-tinued at the Court of Session.
Scottish Labour leader Johann Lamont urged the First Minister to drop the challenge and be "straight with the people of Scotland". She added: "Alex Salmond used to say Scotland could be like Norway. In office he seems to think he can run it like North Korea."
