Alastair Campbell questioned whether Nicola Sturgeon’s party had used the Holyrood election as a mandate for independence despite the Scottish Government’s support possibly coming as a result of their leadership in Scotland during the coronavirus pandemic. The Conservative Party, Welsh Labour Party and the SNP all won their respective May elections, highlighting the public backing for the current Governments across the UK.
Mr Campbell said: “Do you have the time to get that all done?
“It is a massive thing, there are massive unanswered questions.
“Are you really saying you have time to come through the pandemic, have the referendum and get Scotland ready for independence?
“By the way, I do think you did play independence down in this campaign.”
