I’m guessing that over the next few days there’s going to be an awful lot of hot takes on what First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said in her keynote speech yesterday. There’s going to be what she said. What she might have said. What others think she said and what some folks wish she would have said. Also? Fairly sure yer mainstream meeja will be doing their usual level best to bring you all the news that’s fit to wipe your nether regions with.
Me? I’m not going to do any of that. Nope. No siree. Nuh uh! For those of you who missed it though, I’m just going to link you to the actual words spoken and you can make up your own mind. That’s a bit of a theme with me as you’ll have gathered by this point. You come to your own opinions.
You’ll find the text of the speech HERE
Probably worth bearing in mind as you search the usual mainstream suspects for their words of wisdom (cough). The SNP are what? The second largest party of the UK by membership. The third largest party by representation in the HoC and the popularly mandated government of the devolved Scottish parliament.
Let’s see just how much coverage and more importantly, how prominent that coverage will be. After all, we are equal partners. Aren’t we?
