A CAMPAIGN group that stood against several Covid safety laws has shared more photos of Nicola Sturgeon without a face mask on in public settings.

UsForThem (UFT) - which argued schools should reopen when they were closed to protect kids at the start of the pandemic - has shared images of the First Minister without a face covering on at places such as the Glasgow Gurdwara, the largest Sikh temple in Scotland, while she was preparing food in a kitchen and meeting community leaders.

Other photos show Sturgeon maskless at the Cop26 summit but it is understood rules were lifted for a VIP event at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery which was attended by other world leaders. 

UsForThem - whose Twitter bio says "campaigning positively on behalf of children for normal education through Covid-19" -  has argued children should not have to wear masks in schools.

Jo Bisset, organiser for UFT Scotland, said: "The very least those who set these stupid rules should do is follow them. This is yet another example of politicians thinking everyone else should abide by their laws while flouting them themselves.

"Children who've been forced to stew in masks, and are still urged to wear them in schools, will be furious at these latest images. Why should they follow the guidance if Scotland's most senior politicians aren't bothering?

"This could all have been avoided if the First Minister had lifted the mask mandate far sooner and let everyone get on with their lives, not least the children who have suffered so much in the last two years."

It comes after Sturgeon was reported to cops after she was spotted walking into a barber's in East Kilbride without a mask on but the SNP said she realised within a few seconds she needed to put it on and did.

Among those to have complained to Police Scotland was former Tory party treasurer in Moray Jane Lax. She was suspended from the party in 2019 after a vile tweet about the First Minister’s miscarriage.

National clinical director Jason Leitch also agreed with the SNP’s assessment in a BBC interview on Monday morning, when the legal requirement to wear a face mask in public settings was dropped.  

Leitch said: "My understanding is it was a matter of seconds, she realises the place is crowded, puts her face covering on, which is actually what we're asking people to do.

“The guidance is if you are in a crowded area, inadvertently or deliberately, then put a face covering on and that will protect you."

Tory MSP Murdo Fraser and Duncan Bannatyne have both called for the First Minister to step down from her role. 

The Scottish Daily Express claims Sturgeon could face further action for other instances where she chose not to cover her face.

The SNP has been approached for a response to the latest images that have emerged.
