On the surface Yousaf’s commitments sound wide ranging yet there appears little substance to many of his promises. This programme for government both laments the UK government for the limits of devolution while remaining vague on the proposals Yousaf has made. Will it convince voters? Douglas Ross slated the plans for recycling ideas ‘committed by his predecessor’ while Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar said it wasn’t ‘bold enough’. If the Scottish government would only focus more on what it can do rather than blame Westminster for what it can’t, perhaps Yousaf could have presented a more convincing programme.
