When I think of politicians that I admire, the ones who come to mind are the Dennis Skinners, the John McDonnells, the Margo MacDonalds, the Jim Sillars and of course the Katy Clarks... And even current Tory Sarah Wollaston. Politicians who in a parliamentary or parliamentary committee debate will stand up and say when they disagree with the line their party is taking... They will give their view on why they disagree with the line the party is taking and if they're not a cabinet minister they will defy whip and vote against their party.
Under the SNP's rule the public will never know who has taken a stand against a party policy they disagree with, these talks will take place away from public eye, away from the people the MP's and MSP's are elected to serve. They'll not be able to say "that SNP policy is pure shite, but at least my MSP didn't back it".
And??? So what
To be honest it isn't the way I would do things but I still don't see how changes all that much
