Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Sturgeon is slammed for 'chilling' comments about older pro-UK voters”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Nicola Sturgeon has been accused of making 'distasteful' suggestions that the death of older Scots who back the Union could help deliver independence.

The First Minister's remarks were branded 'chilling' yesterday after she said she has got 'time on my side' because of the demographics of support for Scotland breaking away from the UK.

She also said the coronavirus pandemic is likely to have receded sufficiently by early spring to allow her to make 'concrete decisions' about the timing of an independence referendum.

The comments about demographics reflect similar remarks made last year by Angus Robertson, now the SNP's Constitution Secretary, when he said 55,000 predominantly independence-supporting 16-year-olds join the electorate every year, while 55,000 predominantly No-supporting older voters pass away.
