Gove calls Scottish referendum a 'distraction' from Covid pandemic

by News Update

A second independence referendum is a ‘massive distraction’ from the Covid-19 pandemic recovery, Michael Gove has said after Nicola Sturgeon signalled her readiness for a constitutional battle.
Speculation about whether Downing Street will take the Scottish government to court to prevent the referendum began when the Scottish National party won in Thursday’s Holyrood elections
Scottish independence referendum battle is ‘big distraction’ from Covid, says Gove

Sturgeon specifically said that she'd deal with the pandemic first, Gove is being a dishonest pr*ck as usual.

But Nadhim said the pandemic will be over in August. Get the union ragged.

The distractor distracts! No change there, then.

The Conservatives pat Sturgeon on the head.
They know fine well she doesn't actually want a referendum.

i gotta say Scottish independence would be F'ING AWESOME!!!!
They can totally do it and make a massive success of it. The goals and values of Scotland and England/Wales are too divided, Westminster has to accept they can't hold onto Scotland. Who in their right mind can look at the results in Scotland and say we're united? It's delusional.

The day I realised that we are just pawns in a game with the government was the day I realised nothing in this world is real , absolutely nothing except greed and evil. Everything is a cover up for something else.

Gove also said it's OK to touch your family and friends next week, thats his big plan.

Distractions ? Like a new £200m Royal Yacht ?

Andy Blackburn May 9, 2021 - 10:40 PM

political playing, diversion tactic

Mike B May 9, 2021 - 10:40 PM

What's Gove on? His usual white magic dust? Is it what makes his "laser focused"?

Tom Langan May 9, 2021 - 10:41 PM

Like brexit was a distraction from dealing effectively with climate change?

Tomo May 9, 2021 - 10:41 PM

Vice versa !

BobToms100 May 9, 2021 - 10:42 PM

A distraction from what Mr. Gove? A distraction from you and your political party?
