Excellent stuff from Alan Trench in the Scotsman
It’s difficult to choose specific quotes so read the lot….How the SNP are strategising for independence.
And in the here and now: (from the BBC)
A by-election In Inverclyde on June 30. I thought Labour might let things cool down a bit before calling this. (Held the nearest comparable SP seat by 511 votes only).
“Labour previously said a 30 June date was “unlikely”.
The party said last week it was keen to avoid having a by-election during the school holidays and indicated its preference for a “long lead-in time”, to set the date back for about two months.”
Clever or Panic? – don’t know but the SNP have a great candidate, Anne McLaughlin, and just a little. bit. of. momentum.
To be absolutely fair and completely unbiased the Labour Candidate, Iain McKenzie, seems to be a popular bloke…
This is going to be fun……
Update from the Herald – Support for independence is growing.
