Lib Dems respond to Sturgeon becoming longest serving FM

Responding to Nicola Sturgeon becoming the longest serving First Minister, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Alex Cole-Hamilton said:

“Nicola Sturgeon deserves credit for a long stint of public service and the shift put in during the pandemic. 

“However, it says something that when asked to list the SNP’s achievements, so often members of her own party point to free personal care and free university tuition, both of which predate not just Nicola Sturgeon but the SNP administration entirely. 

“There has been no replacement for the unfair council tax, the attainment gap is as stubbornly wide as ever, a decade of poor workforce planning has left us with record waits for A&E and cancer treatment and she’s launched more independence campaigns than ferries.

“While she hunts for more red meat for the independence faithful, Scotland faces the consequences of seven years of missed opportunities. Scotland needs a moderate, progressive government, Scottish Liberal Democrats will be at the forefront of building that alternative.”
