Nicola Sturgeon’s mask hypocrisy laid bare as she shuns face covering at Duke of Edinburgh ceremony

Nicola Sturgeon has been called out for hypocrisy after she and her husband neglected to wear a mask at Prince Phillip’s memorial service.

Face coverings are not required south of the Border with the rules being lifted at the end of January, a move blasted by the First Minister as making England a “global outlier”.

At the time, she fumed: “None of us enjoy wearing them but they are perhaps not the biggest handicap to endure in order to try to stem transmission.

“So while they can make a difference to controlling the virus then i think it is something we should do.

“Again I would suggest that it is England that is the outlier here, not Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, or many countries across the world.”
