One investigation acquitted Nicola Sturgeon, and the other stated that she did not tell Parliament the truth. But this criticism is not serious enough to condemn her. Tuesday’s vote of no-confidence in the Scottish parliament Holyrood was already doomed to failure after the Greens announced it intended to support the sturgeon. So a prime minister who is under severe stress can breathe a sigh of relief. At least for now.
The Corniche victory still stands
Nicola Sturgeon has never been under pressure in more than six years as Prime Minister of Scotland as she is now. Criticism looms over her as she is now joining the campaign trail ahead of the May 6 parliamentary elections. And what was considered for a long time the upcoming victory of the SNP is no longer a matter of course. Latest opinion polls show that support for the Scottish National Party has decreased recently. Not remarkably much, but still.
The Scottish National Party, led by Nicola Sturgeon, needs to win the elections with a clear and distinct majority if the party is to succeed in achieving its overall objective; To conduct a new referendum on independence. Just a few days ago, the Scottish government introduced a bill that would pave the way for a new vote on independence. This means that such a theory could theoretically happen before the end of 2023 if the government gets what it wants. But there is a long way to go. The resistance is enormous.
A fateful choice for the British Confederation
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has made clear repeatedly that he does not intend to allow a new referendum on the independence of Scotland. Without his approval, nothing will happen. But many believe that a disguised Scottish National Party electoral victory will make it difficult for Boris Johnson to say no. Therefore it cannot be stressed enough how important this choice is; For SNP, Nicola Sturgeon, and the Survival of the British Confederation.
Boris Johnson’s worst nightmare will likely be known as the prime minister who split the union. The recent rattle of Prime Minister Nicolas Sturgeon reinforces the case of Boris Johnson. Because even if she has now given everything she has to win the next election, she is weak. This means that the struggle for independence is also weakening.
The May 6 parliamentary elections could be exciting. The election campaign is likely to be dirty and ruthless.
