Open letter from Nicola Sturgeon:

There will be a widespread sense of relief that the chaos of the last few days (indeed months) will come to an end, though notion of Boris Johnson staying on as PM until autumn seems far from ideal, and surely not sustainable?
Boris Johnson was always manifestly unfit to be PM and the Tories should never have elected him leader or sustained him in office for as long as they have. But the problems run much deeper than one individual.
The Westminster system is broken.
For Scotland, the democratic deficit inherent in Westminster government doesn’t get fixed with a change of PM.
None of the alternative Tory PMs would ever be elected in Scotland. And in policy terms, it is hard to see what real difference hard Brexit supporting Labour offers.
Independence only happens if a majority living in Scotland choose it - but there is no doubt it offers the real and permanent alternative to Westminster, and the opportunity to fulfil our potential at home and play our part as a good global citizen.
It’s time for that choice.
Lastly, my differences with Boris Johnson are many and profound. But leadership is difficult and brings with it many stresses and strains, and so on a personal level I wish him and his family well.

Standard Nicola crap. Nice touch at the end tho.
That's not the perspective of my Scottish friends. Nicola Sturgeon doesn't speak for them - on anything. They think she's bonkers.
Mad Lady. Not a clue, really, no self awareness.
I didn't type 'lady'. Rhymed with skint.
Has the FM or the SNP ever claimed to speak on behalf of all those in Scotland?
The title of Maggie's thread would suggest it does, TCL.
Don't know, Corby, but Maggiebee claims this to be the 'Scottish Perspective'.
"Boris Johnson was always manifestly unfit to be PM " - look in the mirror love!

The naysayers are correct of course. NS and the SNPs do not speak for every Scot, just as BJ and the tories don't speak for all the English. Many of my English friends just can't wait to see the back of Boris. Mad self-centred buffoon. Not a clue, really, no self awareness.
God is English her first language?
But as the first word of a sentence leaps out and screams at you

and yes it is to be expected. Aye there's chaos doon in Lundy, and it'll be cured by Scorts Undependence
Doesn't say "The Scottish perspective" does it?
//Mad self-centred buffoon//

Yes, that's pretty much what my Scottish friends think of her.

naomi24 Not here to bandy insults with you, my time is too precious.
Bye then. Have a nice day.
Don't think us English should worry about Scotland. There's only 6 million of you, a lot more in Greater London. You whinge endlessly about Scotland not having the government it desires, yet you're part of the UK. Southern Wales doesn't have the government it wants, nor does the North West.

Scots to get free incontinence pants, for them that can’t stop peeing them selves with laughter at Westmonster gov
A major problem with the voting system is that when an incumbent for high office gets voted in, they believe it is because the general population think they are eminently suitable for the role. The truth is that the general population are frequently faced with having to chose between two incompetents and they go for the lesser of two evils . This does not mean they endorse the selected candidate with any degree of support or enthusiasm, but of course the elected narcissistic egotists can't see this, lacking total self-awareness. Sturgeon and Johnson are classic examples of this dilemma.
Love the complete moving of the goalposts at 12:29, Maggie.
Question Author
Zacs-Master - didn't realise there were any goalposts on this site. Would you please explain just how I have moved the goalposts? NS and the SNP don't speak for all Scots and neither do I. Do you have a problem with this?
Well, you went from a NS letter claiming this was the Scottish perspective. There were no qualifications or caveats, it was, according to your title, the scottish view of the situation. A few people (including my good self) pointed out how ridiculous this was so you then back-tracked and went on the simply attacking BJ.

Clear enough?
