As this thread is supposed to be about Scottish  politics I must say that I watched the installation of M/s Sturgeon  as First Minister with interest and amusement  She reminds me very much of a young Mrs Thatcher full of energy and drive plus determination I think Scotland is in for a shock

You really know how to insult someone, comparing her to Thatcher. Having energy and drive is great but if your desires and beliefs are warped like Mrs T. then they are not great qualities for the rest of the community, better for the rest of us if Mrs T. had been lazy and disinterested in politics. I am impressed with Nicola so far, she seems to want to work for a genuine fair and just society (we know we can't get this but is nice to think that your leaders actually do believe in it). Anyway we will see what happens but unless the Scottish Government get its hands on the fiscal levers of power (and London will never allow this) it will be nothing much. At best she can try to mitigate the worst of Westminster's policies, which is what the Scottish Government has been trying to do for the last 7 years.

   How she deals with the expectations of 92,500 members and counting will be very interesting. Much depends on how well Labour manages its leadership election and who they end up with. It looks like Murphy is being wangled into pole position, and Sturgeon must be praying for that, because he's the last person Labour needs to restore its fortunes in Scotland.

I don't think Scotland is in for a shock because Scotland, by and large, knows and trusts Nicola Sturgeon.    I cannot see any likeness to Thatcher except in gender.    What was amusing?

And now we've got Brown, who stood surety for the Vow, standing down at the Election?  How's that going to work then? People will take even less heed of him. Probably avoiding electoral humiliation by the SNP.

Gordon Brown should never have got involved in the Better Together campaign. He has been used and for the Vow that,s a load of hot air. The lesson has been learned in Scotland do not believe a word Labour the Tories and the Lib/Dems say. Gordon Brown has been used by them if I was him I would never forgive any of them.

The last line I find moderately sexist. The second time in a few weeks you have committed such a deed.

I agree Nicola Sturgeon will be a great leader of the SNP. Connor she will run rings around her opponents in the Scottish Parliament she is a clever lady. In no way is she like that witch Thatcher I don,t know why you have the cheek to say so.

Unfortunately the St George's cross has been hijacked in recent times by the far right, hence the perception of racism attached to those who hang it from their windows.

And don't forget the stupid pc councils that thought it might offend people. Rolling Eyes

confused Did I miss something here? Benniebone said that Nicola Sturgeon reminded him/her of Mrs Thatcher, that Nicola was full of energy, drive and determination. Not awful qualities in a politician surely?

Have you forgotten how hated Mrs. Thatcher was in Scotland? 'Any' comparison to her would be deemed an insult!
