Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is well known for throwing slurs at many from Ed Miliband, David Cameron to Boris Johnson during the past political debates. At some stage it seemed she had TV presenters in her pockets never getting difficult questions and always getting praises. This got right into her head making her feel she is the boss of the United Kingdom.
She has been busy trying to find ways of breaking the union. She must have racked up quite a lot mileage traveling for meetings since the Brexit vote that one has to wonder if she really does have time to do the job she was elected for.
Her lack of tact and never truly weighing her statements before blurting them all out seems to be losing her supporters. If she bothers to take a step back, then she will observe that the people of Scotland she is supposedly fighting for are losing interest in this obsession she has for a staying in the EU. She was sent back from her ludicrous EU requests from Brussels and even the new British PM, Theresa May had to called her to order during her first visit to Scotland during the Union talks.
Perhaps Ruth Davidson will be the right person to get her to do her job as opposed to spending 99% of her time trying to find ways to get Scotland to be part of the EU despite being told that it is impossible for Scotland to be part of the EU without the rest of the United Kingdom. This time around Ms Sturgeon has found herself a befitting match in Ms Davidson, the Scottish Conservative party leader.
It is clear Ruth Davidson is not a pushover and is giving Nicola a run for her money. She is taking her on at every opportunity. The two women are now locking horns displayed in their Twitter public spats. Their latest Twitter spat came about where it came to light after a meeting of the Defence Committee that took place recently. Tony Douglas, who is in charge of the military equipment told the committee that there was no confirmed start date for work to begin on the proposed building of the eight new ships on the Clyde for the Royal Navy. This deal was agreed prior to the Scotland’s Independence referendum and was a focal point during the referendum.
This revelation brought about the Twitter spat between the two strong women locking horns as shown in their disagreement as displayed in their tweets.
At some point in their Twitter spat, Ms Davidson replied: “Remind me again of the number of warships you planned to build in an independent Scotland? Zero, right?”
Then Ms Sturgeon stated their discussion wasn’t “about independence” and instead was about the “promises” the Conservatives had made “in return for No vote”, stating that Ms Davidson’s party couldn’t “dodge responsibilty”.
To which the Scottish Conservative leader replied: “And you can’t seem to answer a single question. But Scotland’s used to that at 12pm on a Thursday…”

Nicola Sturgeon has had a few years of success because of the failed leadership from both previous party leaders, David Cameron and Ed Miliband. This led to the massive loss of Labour and the Conservative seats falling into the hands of the SNP.
As the famous saying goes’ With great power comes great responsibility’ but not in Nicola Sturgeon’s case. She was the first to throw the spanner into works immediately after the Brexit referendum result threatening the break up of theUnited Kingdom. She is ready to defy democracy by applying a veto on the UK Brexit from the EU despite the overwhelming British public mandate. Ms Sturgeon wants a second Scottish referendum despite that fact she had 1.6 million Scottish voters with a desire to leave the EU out of the entire population of Scotland and another 1.5 million undecided voters.
I would be very surprised if Ms Sturgeon self ambition will not cost the SNP a glut in seats into the hands of Ruth Davidson.
Her endless press conferences and meetings regarding getting Scotland to remain in the EU and out of the United Kingdom is taking her eyes out of the ball and she does not seem to care about the real prosperity of Scotland in these dire times.
Perhaps it’s time Nicola to chill and calm down!
