Winners win! Those who look like winners tend to end up as winners. And that is why this poll is significant. It shows the SNP as winners. The specifics don't matter so much as the overall impression. They don't have to actually win anything. So long as they look like winners.
It’s not rocket surgery!
I like to think of this as a Manifesto for Independence. Something quite separate and isolated from a party manifesto. A Manifesto for Independence to which any party or candidate might sign up regardless of their own policy platform or political agenda.
At best, these list parties are not a good idea. At worst, they are the worst idea imaginable.
I don’t get it!
I don't get it. Nicola Sturgeon says that another election win will "reinforce" this sovereign right that is, apparently, only sovereign in a certain 'political' sense. It's only a 'sort of' sovereignty. Why would that sovereignty need to be reinforced unless it was in doubt? Nicola Sturgeon may entertain such misgivings, but I sure as hell don't!
Who to trust?
Scotland cannot continue to be subject to this gross ineptitude. Nor is it reasonable to expect that we should let a hostile British government, or its agencies, have any role in the administration of a new independence referendum.
