Scots Nats take a hit

The COVID Diaries – 301 3rd March

With elections for the Scottish Parliament fast approaching, the Scottish Nationalist Party has looked set to win a convincing victory as disillusionment with Boris Johnson’s Tory UK government has grown in Scotland

This in turn would strengthen the calls for independence from nationalists.

But this week the wheels have come off as former Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond has laid into his prodigy and successor Nicola Sturgeon claiming that she was part of a plot to force him out of public life and even put him in prison.

The row centres on an unlawful Scottish Government inquiry into serious accusations of sexual assault made against Salmond, and what and when Sturgeon new about this.
