The man tipped as the natural successor to Nicola Sturgeon as leader of the Scottish National Party has succeeded Nicola Sturgeon as leader of the Scottish National Party.

    If independence desire is extremism, then almost half the population of Scotland are extremists. Would you have them all locked up under the new UK (Tory) laws, then.
