Rattled Nicola Sturgeon slams ‘outrageous’ move to block gender identity rules


Rattled Nicola Sturgeon slammed Westminster’s ‘outrageous’ move to block her gender identity rules today as she was accused of using the row to further her separatist ambitions.

The SNP leader used a BBC interview to complain that ministers had not provided any ‘compelling’ reasons for blocking the controversial law passed by Holyrood.

She also denied rumours that she is close to quitting after nearly nine years in post and recent setbacks.    

The comments came as former Supreme Court judge Lord Sumption said the SNP was trying to ‘provoke constitutional rows, which they hope will boost support for independence’.

He accused the Scottish Government of ‘froth and rage’ on the issue, as he warned any legal challenge to Westminster’s use of Section 35 powers to stop the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill would fail unless Scottish ministers address the ‘serious legal and practical problems’ in the legislation.
