Cronyism and Nepotism Go Hand In Hand
As far as I can see Scotland's First Minister spends most of her time promoting Nicola Sturgeon, the SNP and the cause of independence.
Instead of acting in the interests of the whole country - including those who voted for other parties or who have no great interest in politics at all.
A small but telling example is that when the First Minister visited Iceland recently, out of all the Scots writers she could have picked, Nicola chose to promote the work of her friend and SNP supporter, Val McDermid.
Bute Birthday Bash Kyboshed (November 22, 2021)

Seems a tad exclusive, unreasonable and unfair.
