First min­is­ter in a hurry

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - COMMENT -

Madam, – Why is Ni­cola Stur­geon in such a hurry to stage an­other vote on the con­sti­tu­tion?

As things stand the SNP can rest as­sured that vot­ers will again put them back into power at the next Holy­rood elec­tions for want of any real al­ter­na­tive.

On pol­icy, be it health, ed­u­ca­tion, po­lice or trans­port, the SNP is the only game in town.

Op­po­si­tion par­ties cor­rectly point out the govern­ment’s flaws and fail­ures but they don’t give vot­ers a clear idea of what they would do dif­fer­ently.

There­fore the SNP can be sure to win an­other Holy­rood man­date for Indyref2 post 2021.

But that won’t ap­pease those Yes ac­tivists within and out­side her own party who keep de­mand­ing ac­tion and whose pa­tience is wear­ing thin. Regina Erich.
