Nicola Sturgeon is booed, the press reader is ashamed

I am writing to say how disgusted I was to attend King Charles’ inaugural visit to the city today and to hear part of the crowd booing our Prime Minister.

I am not a royalist but I wanted to welcome the confirmation of the finally official recognition of Dunfermline as a town.

I don’t believe in an unelected elite, but I would never have considered disrespecting King Charles and Camilla the way some mob members did Nicola Sturgeon.

Don’t the people of Dunfermline know that local SNP councilors were heavily involved in applying for and obtaining township status?

Don’t the people of Dunfermline know that it is SNP policy to keep King Charles as head of state if Scotland becomes independent?

The Prime Minister has always shown respect to the royal family. Are the people of Dunfermline forgetting the work she has done during the Covid pandemic and the efforts she is making to mitigate the worst of Tory politics during the current cost of living disaster?

The boos were, of course, widely reported on both STV and the BBC to place a negative framing on his presence.

What should have been a day of celebration and congratulations was marred by the reactions of some in the crowd.

I have never been so ashamed of my hometown as I am today.
