  1. For goodness sake will all you Unionist commenters GROW UP!
    Nicola Sturgeon deserves all the praise she is receiving at the moment. She has admitted that mistakes have been made. Does that mean because she is the only one admitting it then she must be the only one who has made mistakes, NO! How this strong female has put up with the rubbish from nasty individuals like yourselves, the abominable main stream media and downright jealous reporters I do not know, personally I would have thrown in the towel a long time ago and told you all to get on with it and try doing a better job of it, then again you would have all lied and blamed the SNP for your failings because you certainly could never do a better job than Nicola Sturgeon is doing. Ask the rest of the world……

  2. That is amazing as most people don’t see her unless they live in Scotland. I presume it was uk wide?
    I quite enjoy hearing her on BBC Scotland at lunchtime. She actually answers the questions in a quiet but firm way even though some journalists are asking the same questions. She seems to care , which is refreshing.
    You can not be all things to all people but she gets pretty close.
