Nicola Sturgeon accused of siding with EU over vaccinations

Nicola Sturgeon has been accused of siding with the EU in its battle with the UK over vaccine doses, with the Scottish First Minister pledging to publish confidential vaccine data despite warnings that the information could jeopardise the UK’s supply.

“Stop Brexit.” Let’s be real about what this means — it means stopping the largest democratic vote in British history; it means stopping democracy itself. Sturgeon and others hold the British demos in open, shameless contempt.

Living in Goebbels Land

(17.April) The question is this: whether Scotland wishes to become truly a different kind of state to the UK, or whether it is simply a case of a management buyout of the local NATO franchise. As the UK enters enthusiastically into a new cold war, that question is now a much sharper one.
