Scot Free? Nicola Sturgeon's Final Gamble
Thursday, 21 July
As Nicola Sturgeon’s fight for indyref2 continues, will she get the vote she wants or is she running out of road? What will Boris Johnson’s departure mean for Scotland’s First Minister? Gavin Esler unpacks these issues with journalist Iain Macwhirter, author of Disunited Kingdom: How Westminster Won a Referendum But Lost Scotland.
“Nicola Sturgeon has real problems in the party.”
“Sturgeon is going to turn the next election into a de-facto referendum.”
“Boris Johnson is the one Englishman you are allowed to hate, he’s extremely unpopular in Scotland - but of course he is gone now, and this poses a problem for the SNP.”
“Boris Johnson has been the SNP’s greatest recruiting sergeant.”
“Sturgeon is using this theatre of the courts to create more controversy in the run up to the next general election.”
