Is First Minister Nicola Sturgeon a Unionist Plant? That is the question many are asking on social media this afternoon as she appears determined to destroy any chance of the SNP having a majority after the elections next week. She has announced today that she would instruct SNP MSPs to vote against any motion by the Alba Party to negotiate Scotland’s independence Sturgeon replied: “I don’t believe we should propose a referendum right at this moment. There you have it folks, the leader of the SNP, the party set up with the sole aim of achieving independence for Scotland is not going to propose a referendum on Scottish Independence. Obviously this is a real vote winner and here is some reaction on social media
Bob Costello is a lifelong campaigner for Scottish Independence and was instrumental in 2014 in getting the yes message out there in Dundee, using his own resources when the SNP failed to do so by refusing to use the Wee Blue Book which many credit as being the information that changed their minds, Bob made sure it got out there. Others are equally perplexed by today’s latest Sturgeon bombshell.
I have spoken in recent blogs about conversations I have been having with people who are SNP members and who have been getting increasingly frustrated and concerned by the actions of Sturgeon and the party in relation to this election and independence. Andrew Wilson below is not wrong is he with his tweet. Surely this must get some both votes SNP advocates to wake up to what is going on around them in this election, you are being taken for mugs by the SNP and by Sturgeon, don’t fall for it.
I have tended to have a wee smile when people ask if Nicola Sturgeon is a long term unionist plant in the independence movement and party, we know that Westminster has done this before in the 70s so who is to say that they aren’t doing it now, is Sturgeon a Unionist Plant?
