Nicola: “Really, David? Really?”

Nailed it to heck.

I am childless. I have nieces and nephews. I believe I - like everyone else - have a very real stake in our country.

8. And when she stuck up for Labour politician Angela Eagle.

I don't care who you are - in public office or a private citizen - or what your politics are. This abuse is not on.

It's all in a day's work for the first minister.
