Nicola Sturgeon’s hopes of leading Scotland to independence came to an abrupt end after her radical approach to transgender rights cost her the support of her party.
The Scottish First Minister unexpectedly announced her resignation as she admitted she had become a polarising figure.
Ms Sturgeon said she was no longer capable of increasing support for independence. Her plans to change the law on gender self-identification are now set to be ditched by the SNP, The Telegraph understands.
Politicians want their positions more than anything else. If being pro-trans to this extent loses a significant politician her position then many other politicians will not be, stop being, pro-trans to this extent.
In more detail here there’s a very vocal part of the political class demanding many things for the trans cause. Among the general public not so much. And that’s the thing about this democracy kick – at some point the general public do get asked.
