Apparently, Nicola Sturgeon believes that Scotland hosting COP26 has strengthened the case for independence. What? COP26 was held in the UK -and that’s not mere semantics. It was in Glasgow because Glasgow is a UK city. Plus it was emphatically not hosted, run or organised by the Scottish administration but by the UK Government. Ms Sturgeon was simply a guest, politely invited. But kudos to her – her obsession with separatism, even at a forum dedicated to saving the planet from destruction, is unceasing. Martin Redfern.
