The SNP has dominated Scotland’s political scene for more than 13 years, fighting three consecutive Scottish elections in 2007, 2011 and 2011. Ms Sturgeon led the SNP as party leader and became Scotland’s first minister in 2014. Scotland won the general election less than twice later. The SNPO crushed its rivals in last December’s general election and won 13 more seats in Westminster, under a whopping 48 of the 59 seats it got near Scotland.
But Miss Sturgeon has come under increasing pressure this year as her government handles the coronavirus crisis in Scotland, with nearly 45,000 confirmed and more than 2,600 deaths.
Even after the country voted for the rest of the United Kingdom during the historic 2014 referendum – he has been criticized in several quarters for his continued campaign to force a second referendum on Scottish independence.
Mr Galloway, a former Labor MP who recently founded the political campaign party Alliance Alliance for Unity to strengthen the SNP and end all hopes for Scottish independence, warned that pressure on the SNP and MS Sturgeon was growing significantly.
He has also launched a campaign calling for trust in Ames Stargen and his SNP government, which has already garnered more than 30,000 signatures from Change.com and support from the prime minister and his party’s opposition.
Mr Galloway told Express.com: “Nicola Starzon’s jokes about his record on coronavirus are completely unacceptable as an official position but they are not worse and worse than the majority of other places.
“The issue of Margaret Ferrier has emerged as one of the biggest scandals in Scottish politics in many years.
“The SNP is hurting and now it’s time for those of us who support the union to count this pressure.”
He added: “The SNP is starting to take off and it is time to chase them off the field during the May elections.
“It’s time for Nicola Sturgeon to go. I started an application for her resignation and it quickly got a few thousand votes.
“That application is now just floating around because another application of mine, the registered Margaret Ferrier, is trending on social media and this time the call.”
Mr Galloway outlined a plan for how this could be achieved in the run-up to the Scottish elections in May 2021.
In Scotland, the SNP has reserved 611 of the 129 seats in parliament, with the rest divided between Conservatives, Labor, Greens, Liberal Democrats and independents.
Scotland’s ruling party won 13 more seats in last year’s UK general election, and Scottish political parties now hold 49 of the 58 seats in the House of Commons.
Mr Galloway said the only way to defeat MS Sturgeon and the SNP in next year’s Scottish elections was to form a “cross-class, cross-party alliance”.
He explained that this would mean that pro-union parties would stand in constituencies where they knew they could not win, and would continue to work in areas of Scotland where they were sure they could win.
In the run-up to last December’s UK general election, Brexit party leader Nigel Farage used a similar tactic, fielding dozens of members of the group in areas likely to be dominated by rivals.

Mr Galloway explained: “The SNP is not a party – it is an alliance.
“It is a cross-class, cross-party alliance that will expand the Irish Republic in parts of Glasgow and Lanarkshire and the brogues, tweeds and trout in the Highlands and Islands.
“We need cross-class, cross-party alliances to defeat them
“It means that the pro-union parties will stand where they can’t win, so that the best pro-union candidates can defeat them, and that’s why I’m fighting.”
