While we’re obsessing about the roadmap out of lockdown down here, up in Scotland, there’s a long drumroll preparatory to Nicola Sturgeon unveiling her own route later today. The First Minister has declared — surprise! — that her plan will be driven “by data and not dates”, a line she nicked from the Prime Minister. But the gist of her approach was evident from her reaction to Boris’s plan: she observed that if Scotland were to follow the PM’s lead and open schools in one go, “we would send transmission through the roof again very quickly”. The crucial and indeed only point here is that Scotland’s policies should be manifestly different from those in England. And it’s all part of her bid to demonstrate that she is not Boris Johnson, that her approach is better than his, on Covid-19 as everything else. It’s a personal thing.
