As for Sturgeon, made of teflon.

SNP party numbers have taken a big boost. A swing and miss from the Unionists.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Is that right?

I’m reading they’ve taken a significant hit and the notion of an overwhelming majority at the elections along with a mandate for independence is about 50/50 now.

Their website crashed with new registrations and that's not what the latest poll shows

Despite asking on numerous occasions what anyone wants the answer is simply “Not Westminster”.
====

Ginger, Scotland don't get the Government they vote for, which is why the SNP are a device to get us the fvck out of this Union of scvm.

Once independent we can vote for whatever party we like, and it's the Greens for me.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes ginger has finally got it
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you genuinely believe any other party will get into power should independence be achieved?

I bloody don’t

Scotland will become the very definition of a one party state.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
I don’t care who’s in charge
I just want it to be who we elect

Really?

Not what I’m reading but hey ho. It will be what it will be.

I’d worry if any country has a leader who was “Teflon”.

Just a reminder that the Holyrood has a minority government, on c45% of the popular vote, while
Westminster has a government with an 80 seat majority on less than 45% of the popular vote.
Repeating red top headlines promulgated by the Jeffrey Epstein black book dwelling chairman of the Spectator is beneath the wit of this forum and its posters.

I tend to agree, ginger . They’ll likely get the benefit of the doubt if they ever achieve it and form the first government but the fundamentalist vote could go elsewhere. Who’s to say they won’t just reinvent as ‘the’ centre left party assuming Labour continue to wither?

This is where that’s coming from. Others are reporting it’s over 7,000 new members.

It’s all possible but I see them as managing to control the country now for 15 years and counting despite their abhorrent record on education and all things health.

Get the country independence and who is likely to shift them? It’ll be some time for sure and how much more damage will they do with far less money is my concern?

The Tories have a license to do almost as they want especially with emergency powers right now but they have a growing dissatisfaction from within that should prevent their worst excesses in more normal times. They’ve also something of an opposition albeit paltry.

The SNP have nothing to worry about. They can effectively do as they please. Change the voting system perhaps? Who knows?

Not sure 7,000 new members who would likely have voted for them anyway would make any difference but it’s good headline.

Assuming that any other party is credible they will pick up votes.

The withdrawal of Scottish MP"s from WM will create slightly bigger talent pools for the parties to fish in and potentially lead to stronger oppositions.

If the other parties and their leadership cant produce an suitable alternative, like WM, Scotland will be dominated by one party.

I"m not sure any of this is the SNP's fault.

Anyway. On a more cheery subject.

With a real likelihood that many people won’t be able to travel away on their holidays this year the average price for a stay in the U.K. has gone up a whopping 35%.

Absolute rseholes. Again it’ll be the ones who just manage to get a break who’ll now be priced out.

Why are Anti-Indy, Unionists and some English people so terrified by the possibility of Scottish Independence?

If Scotland is such a drain, and so poorly run etc... would they rather not be rid of us and keep all their money and assets for England, Wales and NI.

Just let us run our own country, let us elect our own affairs good or bad, if we fook it up you can enjoy saying 'telt yeah'

Get Scotland free from WM control, get your Nuclear subs tae fook, and we will take it from there...thanks.

Saw last night that some of the senior tories up here were unhappy with the statement from Douglas Ross calling for NS to resign. They hadn’t been consulted on it before he released it.

It’s as much labours fault
A succession of absolute fookwit leaders
A non policy on Indy letting the Tories do the heavy lifting on opposition to Indy

The SNP have a chance of getting a majority at this election - and the ability to get that under our voting system shouldn't be underestimated or played down - because people like me will be feeling forced to vote for them so we can finally get a definitive answer to the independence question.

I would have absolutely no intention of voting for the SNP in an independent Scotland and I suspect a significant chunk of those who'll vote for them in May will feel the same way.

As Zico said earlier, they are a vehicle to independence. While I admire Sturgeon as a politician, I think their domestic record is poor and I think we can do better.

He's an absolute dullard. A small minded, power hungry man who will simply repeat soundbites for the next few years until he gets found out.

Meh, it’s like football - every team has a shelf life and it can turn in an instant. People will and won’t vote for the Scottish branch of English parties on points of principle. In the event of Indy these parties will have to change too so it’s too tough to predict an outcome.

If they are the only party who continue to commit to free tertiary education they will get my vote regardless.

I think you’re way off the mark. Maybe politicians and the monarchy want to keep a United Kingdom but the general population couldn’t give much of a fwck. Plenty have idealistic notion of retaining a U.K. but they probably want the Commonwealth back too. Or maybe they can for a long weekend and enjoyed the heather or something.

Seriously, most people would be more than happy to cast Scotland adrift. Indications are that England would see a growth of 3% in GDP if the Barnet formula was cancelled.

Essentially it’s a nice thought to keep the nations together but meh, that’s it. Want to go, then stop whining and fwck off is the mantra.

Anyhoo changing subject, I see that Liverpool are falling as fast as Celtic these days. Fragile footballers eh?

That creates an issue where Scots students having free university education prevents them from travelling and experiencing other countries and ways of life to an extent.

Unless they want to pay for it of course.

Dross’s determination to not toe the London line on many matters is admirable but will ultimately lead to his downfall. Like all the others.

I think it was the UKs withdrawal from Erasmus that has hindered that, no?

Call me a cynic, but so far he's only 'rebelled' against the Government on issues that they were going to win a majority vote on anyway, and with little consequence. These power stances he does all seem a little staged to me.
