A pro-independence blog by James Kelly - voted one of Scotland's top 10 political websites.
I was beginning to worry about you, James. Not in the political sense.
In what sense?
Comments seemed to be stuck on 41 on your the previous post. Thought maybe someone or some group had sabotaged your site.
it was interesting, thanks James!
Brexit really 'uniting the country' in Northern Ireland.This is what happens when you ignore how people vote; N. Ireland voting Remain. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-56646392
Is anyone monitoring the Party responses to Nickola's Tuesday Covid briefing on Radio Scotland at 13:04.I complained last week about the first one - it was ugly!Today's was more purely medical.J Greene and A C-H strayed into Party messaging as you'd expect.Stay safe all.
Half an hour was too short to discuss, I would have preferred it to have been an hour.
So, Panelbase tables out and:And who would you vote for with your regional vote?- SNP- Conservative- Labour- Liberal Democrat- Green- Other**Which includes All for Unity on <1%Becomes:- SNP- Conservative- Labour- Green- The Alba Party (led by Alex Salmond)- Liberal Democrat- All for Unity*- Other*Suddenly 4%, without even galloway mentioned! Almost positively down to just adding it to the prompt.Which is a polling facepalm on two counts: (1) for adding 2 parties who've never won a single seat to the main prompt, and (2) treating one party different to all the others by including the name of its well-known leader.Why are reform UK not added? At least they have a seat in Holyrood... What about 'independent' who also have a seat?Why is Sturgeon's name not next to the SNP? Believe it or not, some people won't know she leads the SNP even if they like her....Statistically, this poll is worse than Scotland in Union's attempts. It's very much a non-standard poll so should be excluded from PoP averages.
Interesting, good stuff. Yes has clearly turned the corner.
It's starting to sound unlikely that Alba will actually endorse a referendum in their manifesto; or if they do, only in a vague, conditional way, reminiscent of the SNP in 2016.
