Anas Sarwar calls on Nicola Sturgeon to resign as 'point of principle' if it emerges she has broken the ministerial code
Of course he does. He sees Nicola as a threat to the Labour party. Both the Tories and Labour are trying to do as much damage as possible to the SNP before the election. Pathetic.
Respect is earned and cannot be expected on job title alone. A vote for the SNP is a vote for continued failure, empty rhetoric and lies. If anyone respects those traits, then the SNP is the way to go.
Looking at this, and as no great fan of any Scottish political party, I would have thought the people selected to take on this investigation into Salmond and the SNP's handling of his treatment should be made up of an independent body, instead of members of the opposition who have everything to gain from Nicola Sturgeon being portrayed as not having followed the ministerial code. Also, is it just me, but if you see footage of interaction between Salmond and Sturgeon it looks uncomfortable for her?
Yet Keir Stanmer doesn’t think it would be appropriate to ask or expect Matt Hancock to resign following a court finding him guilty of acting unlawfully in refusing to release details of untendered contracts for the NHS. The double standards at play within Labour is astounding.
Two wrongs don't make a right ,but Douglas Ross accusing the SNP of 'sleaze’! Unfolding PPE scandal and 'people in glasshouses' springs to mind!
One day in the job and he’s calling for the FM to resign. She is going to chew him up and spit him out at FM’s questions.

A majority would vote to reject independence, new polling has revealed
What these opinion polls highlight to me, as does all the vitriol and division surrounding this issue, is that there’s no way a 300+ year old union should be ended based on a 51% vote in favour, which could happen. The huge divisions in this country would just multiply and would not be accepted by the 49%. Constitutional change should require, at the very least, a 60% vote in support of change.
Fantastic let’s get this Indyref2 done now. Glad to see so many unionists that now now believe in polls!

With the Yes "camp" laying so much store by the results of previous opinion polls, will they believe the same for this one ? Will the next move by the SNP considering the result of this poll and recent goings on, be an attempt to delay the May elections in the hope of better times ahead?
Pritti Patel breaks ministerial code for bullying; Matt Hancock found guilty in court of cronyism in selling PPE contracts; Boris lies to the queen, breaks international law and lies to the "UK" time after time; the utter debacle of Brexit; the disgraceful mismanagement of our borders throughout Covid and the press moves along quietly, no witch hunt, nothing to see here… Woo, one poll out of 23 in favour of No... it's clearly all over as Scotland jumps back into line, eh?
Ah, to think when the Indy campaign started we where at 20 percent, now we are at 50 and the campaign hasn't even begun.
Who cares? Indyref2 isn't happening until at least 2055.
The Don't Knows vote 9 to 1 No, ie the status quo. So add that into the equation rather than ignore them. That makes No 55.7 per cent and Yes 44.3 per cent.

But surely this poll is as flawed and useless as the 22 that preceded it?
A poll shows a drop in support and British nationalists love it, can't get enough of it and share the life out of it. For the last 22 polls British nationalists have questioned the polling companies, people asked and the sample size of the polls.
Amid the Alex Salmond inquiry furore, we should remember Charles Kennedy – Kirsty Strickland
As his obit said “Decent, likeable, principled, funny and yet somehow a politician”. How sad to have lost a talented man burdened with a disease such as alcoholism when he had so much to give.
