Following her recent Bute House meeting with David Cameron, Nicola Sturgeon publicly insisted that the two of them are “a world apart politically” -- but is this actually the case?

The Prime Minister wants a strong economy that gives us more businesses, jobs, 
apprenticeships and affordable homes, along with low inflation and rising living standards.

He wants to keep paying down the deficit, reducing bureaucracy, protecting pensions and cutting crime.

And he wants to remain in Nato, reform the European Union, protect the foreign aid budget, control immigration, upgrade our transport infrastructure, modernise our schools and hospitals, increase free childcare, and let hard-working people keep more of their own money.

To which of these ambitions does Nicola Sturgeon object?
