From 10 Downing street!! SNP Scotland First Minister will deal with David Mundell because according to Tory sources he is the same level as her. Whats happened to better together?
A Tory minister quoted in a newspaper report yesterday signalled the end of the one-to-one meetings between the two party leaders.
The “First Minister will no longer get access to the Prime Minister. She should be meeting David Mundell because he is the same level as her,” the source said.
Reportedly, the Tories believe May coming to Scotland and making her first meeting as prime minister with Nicola Sturgeon, and posing for photographs on the steps of Bute House, made the Scottish leader “look like an international dignitary, rather than the leader of a devolved nation”.
