Nicola Sturgeon BANS Boris's Stay Alert slogan in Scotland

Nicola Sturgeon tore into Boris Johnson's chaotic new lockdown plans today, 에그벳카지노 insisting that they would not be used in Scotland.

The First Minister said she would ignore the Prime Minister's 'vague' new 'Stay Alert, Control the Virus, Save Lives' slogan in favour of the previous 'Stay Home' message.

It was the latest sign that Mr Johnson's attempt to keep the four nations of the United Kingdom in sync over coronavirus was in danger of breaking down. 

Last night Ms Sturgeon's Welsh counterpart Mark Drakeford said the 'stay at home' message had not changed in Wales either.

Speaking to Sky News today Mrs Sturgeon denied a rift within the UK, saying she was speaking from a legal rather than political position.

'The Prime Minister last night, apart from things like border control, was talking about lifting restrictions in England. I have to make judgements about what is right for Scotland,' she said.

'I, at this stage, think it would be too risky to ease restrictions because the virus, while we have made progress against it, is not sufficiently under control yet.

'That progress we have made is fragile and I think it is really important to err on the side of caution.' 

Speaking to the BBC about sending people back to work, she added: 'If - given the state of the evidence in Scotland and the state of the virus in Scotland - I was to do that now in Scotland, then yes I think that would potentially put lives at risk.'

The First Minister said she would ignore the Prime Minister's much-criticised new 'Stay Alert, Control the Virus, Save Lives' slogan in favour of the previous 'Stay Home' message.







Grilled by Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain today, Ms Sturgeon countered suggestions by Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab that people would be allowed to see their parents living elsewhere as long as they stayed two metres apart.
