Scotland deserves to be governed by grown-ups

Responding to Liz Truss describing Nicola Sturgeon as an "attention seeker" and the SNP's outraged response, Scottish Liberal Democrat deputy leader Alex Cole-Hamilton said:

"The people of Scotland deserved to be governed by grown-ups.

"Nicola Sturgeon will be secretly glad of these comments because it allows the SNP and the Conservatives to spend their time on a silly and undignified war of words, rather than focus on the difficult and complicated issues that both of their governments are failing to deal with.

"Neither of them has a plan for tackling the cost-of-living crisis, the climate emergency or the backlogs in the NHS.

"Scotland deserves two better governments. An election to remove them cannot come soon enough."
