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
The female of the species is always the most dangerous
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.
