Sturgeon: Nothing wrong with Ferguson ferry contract process

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says she doesn't "accept" the alleged "deficiencies" in the procurement of contracts to construct ferries to serve routes in the Hebrides and on the Clyde.

She rejects suggestions from former Ferguson Marine shipyard owner Jim McColl that the process was rushed for political gain, saying Audit Scotland found "nothing untoward" in the awarding of the contract to Ferguson Marine.

Sturgeon: Time to talk about Scottish independence again

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says that after "Covid, Brexit, Boris Johnson" it is time for Scotland to "talk about independence" again; eight years after the previous referendum vote. She claims that the Scottish Parliament elections of 2021 have given the SNP an "indisputable democratic mandate" to offer the Scottish people the right to choose again. She argues the UK government has "no respect for democracy" and they will move forward without a Section 30 order "if necessary". Report by Edwardst.
