An analysis of GE2017 votes suggests that the SNP got their strategy wrong on the question of the EU, at least in the short term.
I understand why the left might be dissapointed by the SNP and attracted to Labour. That said, a strong SNP is a better lever for real change.
According to a new YouGov survey, apathy hurt the SNP more than any other factor in GE2017. About a quarter of 2015 SNP voters didn’t vote.
The argument against indyref2 is that most Scots voted for parties that don’t support it. Fine, lets use that same logic and stop mitigating austerity.
After GE2017 I can see why it may be tempting to bin indyref2. Let’s not as the results of the election make winning independence far more likely.
I can see why many are drawn to vote for Corbyn but if you want to kick the Tories out, under FPTP, you need to think tactically.
I hope that Jeremy Corbyn becomes the PM and transforms the UK. If you want to help him then the worst thing you could do is vote for Scottish Labour.
The Scottish Tory manifesto is full of promises on devolved issues. It even vows that the SNP will protect the Scottish Winter Fuel Allowance.
After recovering from the laughter induced by the Tories suddenly caring about Scottish consent. You’ll probably cry at the democratic implications of this.
The news that the Scottish Green party will only contest 3 seats in GE2017 is good news for the SNP. Maybe SNP supporters can return the favour in 2021?
Not only was May’s anti-EU tirade undiplomatic and counter-productive, the points she made show that she knows Brexit could be a disaster.
The Tories want you to believe they are the party of normal people. Yet their record suggest otherwise. They are compromised by #torydirtymoney
Theresa May and the conservatives are trying to replace healthy democracy, media scrutiny and public engagement with buzzwords like Strong and Stable.
Sturgeon has been as clear as she can be about her indyref2 plan. The UK should formally reply to her request before Sturgeon makes her next step.
Scottish Tories only talk of indyref2 but this election is about serious issues & giving them a hard-Brexit mandate will hurt Scottish small businesses.
During the last General Election campaign, Alistair Carmichael won by lying to the people of Orkney and Shetland. Will they reward or punish him next time?
