Tonight I've written (in a personal capacity) on why calling female leaders like Nicola Sturgeon 'frosty' and 'ambitious' are loaded terms. Stick to debating policies, not judging if a woman who doesn't have kids 'deserves' or 'fails' a maternal nickname

Utterly unacceptable from Bolingoli. With a number of incidents, Scot Govt left with little choice but to consider whether pause is now needed in resumption of the game Operational matter for Border Force & Police Scot, I support whatever enforcement action they deem necessary
