Nicola Sturgeon admits SNP is 'not perfect' after 10 years in power

Nicola Sturgeon admits SNP is 'not perfect' after 10 years in power

She said that "rather than look back, we're looking forward", adding: "We're proud of what we've done but we're absolutely full of ambition about what we still want to do".

The First Minister also defended her decision to pursue a second independence referendum earlier this and said students concerned about independence should still vote for the SNP.

She then added, "So it underlines the point that over these next couple of years we really need to have people in their arguing Scotland's corner".

In an interview with The Saint today (11 May), Nicola Sturgeon has said that the "UK government is all too ready to dismiss Scotland's voice" on issues such as Brexit and higher education.

Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale said: "Nicola Sturgeon is trying to use Brexit as the excuse for another divisive referendum, but won't be straight with people about her position on European Union membership".

But critics pointed out that Scotland's economy is lagging behind the rest of Britain's while literacy rates have fallen over the past four years.

This newspaper obtained correspondence between Ms Sturgeon, other SNP ministers and civil servants in the run-up to the report's publication.

The Tory leader added: "I think people, if they stop and think about a Scottish government that's got more powers than any previous Scottish government, that's got a bigger budget than any previous Scottish government, what they could have done in 10 years if they hadn't spent so much time trying to rip Scotland out of the United Kingdom and continuing to do so".

'There will be people in Scotland thinking it is a real missed opportunity'.

"Ironically, many of our policies were implemented in the face of fierce opposition from the Labour party in Scotland".

Labour business manager James Kelly said the SNP's 10-years in power had meant a "decade of division" for Scotland. But in this case the imitation shown by both Labour and the Tories is anything but honest.

"To encourage young people not just to absorb facts and figures but to be able to analyse that and be make sense of the word they live in".

"We have to set that out at the time because there are still some uncertainties, many uncertainties, around the Brexit process".

She also aped the Prime Minister's language of appealing for personal votes that would be "strengthening my hand" in her effort to be heard in Brexit negotiations.

The comments prompted a strong response from Jackson Carlaw, the Scottish Conservative leader, who said Sturgeon was playing political games with the electorate.

Analysis of the results in the two councils that make up Gordon - six wards in Aberdeenshire and two in the City of Aberdeen - show that while the Conservatives got most first-preference votes in those eight wards, they actually won fewer council seats than the SNP.
