The myth that Sturgeon is a strong leader has persisted for far too long. The reality is that she is extraordinarily weak and like all weak leaders her actions are dictated by a visceral fear of being found out. Her aggressiveness when challenged is the embodiment of weakness. Her paper-thin knee-jerk policies rushed out in response to opinion polls and focus groups, absence of vision or strategy, avoidance of detail that could be questioned, evasion from being held to account or even debated, constant flip-flopping depending on how the land lies, parrotting decisions taken elsewhere and her intolerance of anyone in her coterie that could hold a contrary viewpoint all point to a person crippled by imposter syndrome. Her only refuge is to lash out at Westminster and vaguely promise that independence would be the salvation for all of Scotland's ills. But don't ask her how.
