Easy ride

I was hoping for a forensic interrogation of Nicola Sturgeon by Andrew Marr in his programme on Sunday so the viewers across the UK could see the real face and lack of economic awareness of the SNP.

What I saw was a soft line of questioning, Nicola Sturgeon being allowed to talk at length without interruption and without any real contentious issues being raised.

Contrast that with the way in which David Cameron was treated. He was constantly interrupted while replying to Marr’s questions and subjected to a wholly irrelevant: “Is it true your favourite sport is fox hunting?”

This shabby attempt to introduce a note of class envy to the debate demeaned Andrew Marr.
