    There has been an injunction in the UK stopping UK media from discussing the fact that First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has been caught in bed with another woman. It doesnt apply outside the Uk though

    Whereas that may be mildly titillating, its of no political importance.

    Its ofsome political importance. ridicule destroys public confidence. Just look at Corbyn.

    Do you have a link to foreign media reporting it? You could claim literally anything happened but it’s being reported because of an injunction after all.

    Links to foreign sites wouldn't (couldn't) be "blocked" just because of an injunction.

    If you can't (or don't think you can) access any evidence though, how do you know it happened? How can we?

    I see nothing wrong with being caught in bed with a sturgeon. Let's try to be more species neutral and just get along.

    Who caught her in bed with another woman? Her husband? I did a search and this site is the only link on the topic - besides given that the Tory and Labour Leaders in Scotland are both gay women, who'd be bothered.
