Holyrood’s New Year Political Pledges

IT’S THAT time of the year again when we make determined personal pledges, many of which may be kept for a matter of months, some for weeks and others for just a few days. Especially in this era of post-truth politics.

So, here’s what we think our Holyrood leaders should be committing to by way of New Year Resolutions for 2017. In true d’Hondt spirit, we offer four resolutions for First Minister Nicola Sturgeon; three for the Conservatives’ Ruth Davidson; two for Kezia Dugdale of Labour; and one each for the Greens’ joint leadership of Patrick Harvie and Maggie Chapman and for Willie Rennie of the LibDems.

To all of them, we wish a Happy New Year. Our polity is important. Disengagement and cynicism serves none of us.

NICOLA STURGEON, First M in ister

CREATE two solid alternative plans for Scotland’s place in a post-Brexit world, whether that be the economic nuts and bolts of full Independence or the maximum Home Rule that might keep us in both the European single market and the UK.
