Neil Oliver was joined by fellow GB News presenter Alastair Stewart to discuss the SNP’s hold on Scotland. The conservationist was clear that a “one-party state” was always a disaster and warned that Scotland needed to see great pressure placed on the SNP in order to keep the “structures” of Scottish society intact. Mr Oliver said Nicola Sturgeon’s Government needed to be challenged adding that Scots were “crying out” for stronger opposition.

Presenter Mr Oliver said: “In Scotland, it is crying out. You cannot have usefully a one-party state.

“It doesn’t matter, you can’t have everything pulling in one direction.

“The big tent of society is held up my tension in equal and opposite pulling that keeps the structure up.

“If you are all pulling in one direction everything falls to the side.”

He added: “That is simply wrong!”

“We need to be careful about the way we manage things going forward,” continued Mr Burnham.

“I was really disappointed on Friday that the First Minister of Scotland announced out of the blue a travel ban, saying people in Scotland couldn’t travel to Manchester and Salford, and the other way around too.

“That is exactly what the SNP always cause the Westminster Government of doing. Just riding roughshod over people.

“The SNP are treating the north of England with the same contempt in bringing that in without any consultation.”

He said: “I think it’s double standards. It’s hypocrisy.”
