LUNCH WITH NICOLA STURGEON


So, it's lunch with Nicola Sturgeon.



My lunch with Nicola Sturgeon, Prime Minister of Scotland, takes place at her home in Glasgow.

The lobster and Chateau Lafite Rothschild are very tasty.

"How is the economic situation in Scotland?" I ask.

She smiles and says: "As a result of the Lockdown, and the permanent closure of many enterprises, there will be a lot less money coming in from taxation.



"The economy may shrink by one third.

"Jobs will disappear in tourism, hospitality, leisure, oil and gas etc."

"A no deal Brexit will make things worse for Scotland."

"There will be a greater demand for health spending and social care spending."



So, what is the answer?

I ask Nicola if she will make students start to pay tuition fees.

I ask if she will privatise the health service in Scotland.

I ask if she will have to sack lots of people working for national and local government.

Nicola avoids answering but says 'Well, the Lockdown has brought some benefits, such as cleaner air and quieter roads.'

In 2016, Sturgeon publicly backed Hillary Clinton.[97]

An aide hands a phone to Nicola Sturgeon. It's a call from NATO, an organisation which she supports.

I am ushered to the exit door.

The above, of course, is fiction.
