Boris Johnson warned he will be ‘picking up the bill’ for Scotland instead of Sturgeon

Sturgeon ‘believes’ she is ‘invulnerable to criticism’ says expert

Tony Miklinski told that the UK Government is funding what is unfolding in Scotland during the coronavirus crisis. The Scottish Tory also claimed that the economic welfare of Scotland is not top of the agenda for Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon.

Mr Miklinski said: “We are nearly a year into it the pandemic and we know the basics of it now.

“Obviously, the mutation was not fully predicted but it is not a total surprise either.

“I think Nicola believes she is virtually invulnerable to criticism.

“I think she has been in power so long and has such control over what is said up in Scotland, that she can say ‘I am expecting to make mistakes’ secure in the knowledge that will not affect her loyal base of support.

“She is getting daily coverage and people need to see a leader when they are under stress as we are in the pandemic.

“She can parade herself secure in the knowledge that the economic impact of this does not bite on Nicola Sturgeon nearly as much as it does on the UK Government.”

He continued: “They are funding what is happening in Scotland.

“The economic impact on jobs and well-being is not on the top of her agenda.”

Mr Miklinski also stated Ms Sturgeon will not lead the SNP into the next general election in 2024 if her path to Scottish independence is blocked.

The Scottish Conservative suggested the SNP leader will not stick around if it becomes clear she will not be granted another referendum on Scotland’s independence from the United Kingdom.

He added that SNP members will grow tired of her approach and look for a more aggressive leader if she continues to fail in her quest to deliver Scottish independence. 

Mr Miklinski said: “I do not think Nicola Sturgeon will stick that long if she does not have a clear path to another independence referendum.

“That is what she stands for and that is what she has promised the troops.

“If her approach which has been regarded as moderate by many SNP MPs, waiting and biding her time, if it isn’t producing results then I think her own personal interest, as well as the patience of her own party, will strain.

“They will look to find a more aggressive leader who can try to bring about this referendum through some other means.

“Frankly, as long as the Scottish people stand firm and see the common-sense arguments, realise where their self-interest lies, not with independence, then she is not getting what she wants.”
