On Monday, June 8th, the First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon discussed the Scottish National Party’s election victories and reasons for wanting independence from the U.K.
“Nicola Ferguson Sturgeon (born 19 July 1970) is the fifth and current First Minister of Scotland and the Leader of the Scottish National Party, in office since 2014. She is the first woman to hold either position. Sturgeon represents Glasgow Southside as its MSP.” (Member of the Scottish Parliament – ed.).
“A law graduate of the University of Glasgow, Sturgeon worked as a solicitor in Glasgow. She was first elected to the Scottish Parliament in 1999, and served successively as the SNP’s shadow minister for education, health and justice. In 2004, she announced that she would stand as a candidate for the leadership of the SNP following the resignation of John Swinney. However, she later withdrew from the contest in favour of Alex Salmond, standing instead as depute (deputy) leader on a joint ticket with Salmond.”

A university student is warning others against using unregistered taxis in England after she fell victim to a predatory cab driver who sexually assaulted her.
Lily Wright, 22, from Birmingham has waived her right to anonymity to share her terrifying experience and to urge others not to take unlicensed cabs.
Lily and her friend Jamielee Smalldon, 21, had flagged down a taxi, driven by Mohammed Iqbal – a father of three – following a night out in Birmingham.
After dropping Jamielee at her house, Iqbal drove Lily to a secluded wooded area and sexually assaulted her, according to the U.K Daily Mail.
He then drove her home – after he ordered her to pay him £50 for the return fare. “It was disgusting and I was convinced he was going to kill me.” “After what he’d just done to me, I couldn’t believe he had the nerve to charge me,” she said, according to the Birmingham Mail.
Iqbal first pleaded not guilty to two separate sex attacks – one on Lily, and another on a second woman at another time. He later changed his plea to guilty.
“The next day police revealed the court had presented the evidence, and my attacker had changed his plea to guilty to two counts of sexual assault and one count of kidnap,” said Wright.
“I believe women should trust taxi drivers, and take a taxi rather than walking home alone at night,” says Wright. “But they should book a registered taxi rather than waving one down in the street,” she said. “You’re putting your safety in their hands. And I learnt my lesson the hard way.”
