She’s ignored her own laws more than once.

That time she stopped to speak to some older people at a funeral? Worse. Than. Hitler. 

I do enjoy this theme of story/ headline tho. It was once beautifully described as the "Some arsehole doctrine." Where it was argued 90% of Scottish journalism output is "someone does/says something."

SNP ACCUSED is a favourite, in this case 'Sturgeon reported to police" and it's not until later or at the very bottom of the article you learn that the person doing the accusing or reporting is just some arsehole. Heavily implied or easily assumed in this instance tho.

It may be to your chagrin but this is to your demerit.

I’d say his promoting the Tweets of banned alt-right extremists was probably more damning.

Try again.  They’ve been in the media.  List them all.

Makes facial gestures like one eating a 'nippy sweetie'.  
The daft wee ScotchNats will tell you it's misogynistic.  But, to a person, they are pathetic.
Probably no more pathetic than the resident forum drunk regularly coming on at swinging at posters that are simply taking the piss out him tbf.

Not just any old arsehole, this arsehole. Why do they all seem to come from Moray?

Whit a mess Scotland is in, between the Yoons and wee Nippy's mob - never the twain shall meet. No discussions anymore, just whitabootery

It's not just Scotland. It's the same all over. Everything is them and us. No middle ground. No discussion. No compromise.

If politicians would just stop making stupid rules foisted on them by so-called experts, things would be a lot, lot better.

I do not blame Sturgeon for being without mask (just like myself) and neither do I blame Boris for attending a few parties (just as I did).

Making rules to deny people doing what people do never works.

Yeah it's a shame. I thought some of the posters on this section may not be so blinkered to actually call it out for what it is. Instead they're all quick to deflect and have some petty squabble. Sad state of affairs.

Almost like if you criticise the FM making a mistake then you've went against the gang. You can call it an error or lapse of judgement and still take a position "yoons" are overreacted and trying to smear her etc... it's quite disturbing how some people don't seem to care at all presumably because they're laser focused on Indy being delivered (stop laughing at the back)

One of the phrases some of the more colourful posters went for when Boris broke his own rules was "they could shite on your doorstep and get away with it". After reading the last page I'm convinced some here would be asking Nicola to do them the pleasure and have the toilet roll in their hands at the ready.

True, the rules should never have been law but merely guidelines

If you can’t tell the difference between a momentary lapse in memory by someone who is photographed every waking hour she’s in public and the repeatesd hosting or attending boozy parties in their own home and then repeatedly lying to the HoC and public about whether they even took place or not then your either a worse troll or a lot thicker than people have given you credit for. Take your pick.

Aye there’s no equivalence.  As someone who firmly believes in a diverse and inclusive society I hope all these unionist apologists f**k off to England after Independence.

Or Wales or Northern Ireland no?

Was that an anglophobic slip?
