The Prime Minister reportedly rejected a plan to invite Nicola Sturgeon to UK Cabinet meetings.

The Financial Times reported that Michael Gove put forward the idea, floating it as a way to suppress support for Scottish independence by making it appear that Westminster is listening to Holyrood.

Support for independence is at 54%, according to recent polls. Since the figures were published UK Cabinet ministers have visited Scotland five times, government figures have appeared in more Scottish media and Boris Johnson is reportedly planning a two-week holiday north of the Border.

However, according to the newspaper, involving the First Minister in the Cabinet was too much for the Tory leader.

A UK Government source said: “He doesn’t like the idea of Sturgeon being seen as on the same political level as him.”

It comes after several polls throughout the coronavirus crisis have shown people have significantly more trust in Sturgeon than Johnson. In Scotland, there is about a 99% difference between their approval ratings.

After recent visits from Johnson, Alok Sharma, Rishi Sunak and Gove, yesterday the UK Government sent Scottish Secretary Alister Jack to Edinburgh to open its new hub.

Jack said Queen Elizabeth House, located near Waverley Station, “epitomised” ministers’ support for the Union.

He should be flattered anyone would think he could reach her political level.

That is your stance on everything Johnson does.

That new uk gov hub in Edinburgh lasted less than a day before it was vandalised. Just to be clear on how scotland feels about the colonial oversight office.


It’s be a step down for Sturgeon to have to sit at a table with the shower of morons in the uk cabinet. But the fact that none of the devolved administrations are represented by someone from those administrations is a shambles. Far better than having a NI secretary who couldn’t find Belfast on a map of Belfast

Of course you do. Sturgeon has been doing just fine without having to meet up with that goblin.

What a shocker. Blindly agreeing with anything he does having only read the headline + never elaborating on why you're agreeing. And each time you do it's just "because he's the PM xo". Talk about ignorance and being so out of touch with everything that's going on in the world. People blindly agreeing with everything that their governments do cause dictatorships.

I’d like to suggest Boris changes his title from “minister for the union” to “minister for Scottish independence”

She is in charge of the Scottish devolved Government and is not a UK Cabinet minister so shouldn't attend the UK cabinet.

So the UK government proposed a plan and then rejected it themselves. Whoopty doo

But yeah it’s much better to just go along with whatever they say. Until you turn into Belarus/Russia
