'SNP are an embarrassment to Scotland' - Twitter reacts to First Minister's Questions

Twitter has reacted to Nicola Sturgeon's challenge in FMQs

Thursday, March 16, 2017

Nicola Sturgeon's reaction to Theresa May's decision to reject the idea of a second Scottish referendum has divided opinion on Twitter.

Ms Sturgeon suggested Ms May and the Tories were "running scared" of Scotland's separatists during First Minister's Questions in Holyrood, while insisting she had a mandate to act if Scotland was “dragged out of Europe”.

The reaction has provoked a wave of support and congratulation from supporters of Ms Sturgeon and the SNP - but also led many to criticise the leader of the Scottish independence movement for her perceived impertinence.
