Such a sudden, unconvincingly explained (burn-out? Really?) departure. I do wonder what the whole story is. The SNP will find it hard to recover from this, as regardless of what you thought of Sturgeon's divisive politics, she was a convincing leader, and certainly performed well on the public stage. I don't see anyone shaping up as a credible, effective successor, which I guess is good news for the Union? 54% against Independence at the last count? Wonder what it is now? Yes, a day can be a long time in politics, and "the bubble reputation" is so easily burst..
