So the Sun have moved on from blaming victims and hacking phones to taking photos at a private funeral. Utter scum newspaper.

Good to see Sturgeon apologise. Sorry seems to be the hardest word for others.

I say this as someone who isn't a big SNP fan (but not a Tory, just for clarification).

FFS about time this apology for a newspaper is shut down. Not a supporter of SNP myself but is this really a big news story? I have to wear a mask at work moving around every day and have a few times not done so unintentionally.

All the high profile SNP MP’s and MSP’s must get tailed by the paparazzi ,more so than other politicians from other parties I feel. Christ they probably follow them when they go for a s***£.

Comes with the territory though I suppose.

Nicola Sturgeon was leaving a private funeral wake, took her mask off when some old biddies wanted to say hello. She went over briefly.
Some lowlife took a photo to sell to the Sun newspaper.

Nicola Sturgeon our dear lead, was leaving a private funeral wake, took her mask off breached all her law, yeah her laws, the same ones she wants put into law!
However her old biddies wanted to say hello, so it shouldn’t apply to her as long as you say you are sorry.

It`s not really anything to get too much in a twist about. The hazard is there but the risk was low and her mistake was briefly, quickly corrected and she apologised for the lapse. That should really be the end of it. It`s nowhere near in the same class as the Margaret Ferrier debacle or the Calderwood gaffe.
However do we have to go all Rita Hayworth over the fact she was photographed at a funeral? She is Scotland`s most senior elected official, anytime she steps pit of her front door her private life doesn`t exist. If Boris Johnson was at a funeral he`d photographed as well. I also suspect that many of us wouldn`t be quite so charitable towards Johnson had he been the one snapped.
On a side note I`m surprised there was a wake after the funeral. I have been fortunate enough not to have needed to attend a funeral during the pandemic but I thought they had stopped having wakes during it.

We all hate poverty, war, and injustice.

May just be me, but you don't take photos at a wake. It's disrespectful. No surprises that it was the Scum. That paper should have been put out of business years ago.

I doubt it DC. I don't think The Sun has enough papps or column inches to spare for everyone who does that. Double standards indeed...

As I've said before on here I have no interest in any party or politics in general but I'd rather have Sturgeon as our leader just now than Boris. Clearly mistakes have been made but she's a good communicator and she seems to put in the hours.

I am a fierce critic of Nicola and all things independence but this really is a non-story. She made a mistake and apologised - move on.
It is very easy to be in opposition when the governing party is handling a situation that has never been faced before. Keyboard warriors hurling abuse and you are dammed if you do and damned if you don’t.
When you add on having your every move photographed it is little wonder that Holyrood is a talent vacuum. Who in their right mind would put themselves forward for election.

She should be punished the same as anyone else who does the same.
A bad mistake but I think she has led the country well during the current crisis, after all would you prefer Boris!

A non story and she will be as hard on herself as anyone else.

So a £30 fine rather than plastered over the Scum.

I think it`s normally a wee bit more than a silly moment of forgetfulness for a £30 fine.It isn`t as if she was cuddling up to anybody without her mask on.Total non event that only a paper like that would have any interest in printing.

I thought pubs could not sell alcohol either? Unless funerals are exempt. She is though becoming rather forgetful when it suits at the moment. One rule for one and other for everyone is pretty standard, at least we can all say we are allowed one mistake if we get caught or forget!

She admitted that she broke the rules inadvertently. It isn`t as if she was blatantly flouting them. I was in a shop a few weeks ago for about a minute to make a single purchase and it wasn`t until I was outside that I realised I`d forgotten to put my face covering on. No one challenged me, no one photographed me so I `got away with it` but what NS did was no worse than that.

Im not really a fan of wee Jimmy but to take a photograph of her at a funeral and put it on the front page of the Sun is a pretty poor show.
As wee eck says I`m sure we have all forgotten our masks at some point.

"I thought pubs could not sell alcohol either? Unless funerals are exempt"

Correct, post funeral ceremony gatherings are exempt within the maximum 20 persons rule.

If the First Minister had broken that law then the Sun wouldn`t have had to highlight an inadvertent lapse - they`d have been all over it like a rash.

I seriously didn`t know alcohol could be served at funerals, just asking the question. I knew up to 20 people could attend and they must still adhere to the social distancing, but didn`t realise alcohol could be served.

The same 20 people can go back for the after ceremony wee drink/sandwich but wear a mask at all times when leaving the table you are seated at.
