Well beginning to look like he has even less appeal than Farage. Brexit party managed more than 3% in Scotland but still got thumped https://t.co/YaMfOCNfAT— Newsnet.Scot (@NewsnetScotland) April 1, 2021
They did respond to my question, but only with the non-answers of "it means what it says James" and "aye whatever", which is not surprising because their claim was complete gibberish. The Brexit party fought two elections in Scotland - the 2019 Euro election and the 2019 general election. In the former, they took well over 3% of the vote but most certainly were not "thumped" - they were in second place on 15% and won one of the six Scottish seats. In the latter, they were indeed thumped - but took well under 3%. So whichever way you look at it, the point simply doesn't make any logical sense and doesn't have any particular relevance to a poll showing Alba on 3%.
What the hell does this even mean? Does it mean the Brexit Party got more than 3% in Scotland in the Euro elections when it won one of the six seats under the PR system? If so, what point is being made here? Newsnet is turning into a parody of itself.https://t.co/lVrqFQXHsW— James Kelly (@JamesKelly) April 1, 2021
