UK support for Nicola Sturgeon to be in TV debates

This but on a national scale

About time. SNP are on the biggest parties in the UK. Only right Nicola gets a soap box.

The SNP has today welcomed polling showing support for Nicola Sturgeon being included on the televised leaders debates from the rest of the UK voters.

53 per cent of voters across the UK say Ms Sturgeon should be involved compared to only 30% who say she should not be involved. With the ‘Don’t Knows’ removed 64 % say Scotland’s First Minister should be included.

The polling by YouGov also shows the vast majority of non-SNP voters in Scotland back Ms Sturgeon being included in the debates.

Commenting, SNP Westminster Leader Angus Robertson MP said:

“This polling is very welcome and shows that south of the border and across the nations and regions of the UK people rightly recognise the need to have Nicola Sturgeon included in the televised debates.

“The YouGov poll also shows Labour, Tory, Lib Dem and major party voters in Scotland agree with Ms Sturgeon’s inclusion to the debates – by a margin of nearly 3:1 when ‘Don’t Knows’ are removed – which  speaks volumes about the SNP’s strong position ahead of May’s General Election.

“With a larger membership than the Lib Dems and UKIP combined and more elected MPs than UKIP, the case for including the SNP is unanswerable.

“I have already written to Ofcom to query their undemocratic and illogical decision. Broadcasters – along with our broadcast regulator – have a duty to be impartial in their election coverage. To try and exclude the SNP would be a failure to deliver these democratic duties.

“It would be ludicrous for the SNP to be shut out of these proposed debates – a position backed by voters north and south of the border – and that is something that should be accepted by all involved.”

Nicola Sturgeon sworn in as first minister of Scotland

Well done Nicola

Well done Nicola, now go create history!

By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews

SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon has been formally sworn in as Scotland’s first minister in front of senior judges at the Court of Session in Edinburgh. She is the 5th First Minister of Scotland

Ms Sturgeon was elected to the role by MSPs on Wednesday before receiving the Royal Warrant, which is formal approval of her appointment.

She is due to lead First Minister’s Questions for the first time as head of the Scottish government.

Ms Sturgeon is not expected to announce her new deputy until Friday.

Dundee East MP Stewart Hosie has taken over Ms Sturgeon’s role as the SNP’s deputy leader but, because he does not serve in the Scottish Parliament, she will need to choose a deputy first minister from among the ranks of the party’s MSPs.
