In Topic: How The Referendum Was Won

Yesterday, 11:13

It's quite a clever policy from the SSP (if they are to back UDI).What harm can it actually do? The last I checked they only have 1 councillor in the whole of Scotland! It may attract some of the socialist Yes/soft SNP supporters who don't want to vote SNP on the list, and aren't attracted to the Greens.

 

It's a long time til May, but I have a feeling that the SNP may well win another majority and the Greens won't make anything like the 10+ MSPs some polls had predicted.

 

We'll see I suppose.

That article from Peatwarrior is pretty spot on.

 

I also enjoy reading/hearing comments from Doug Daniel too. He's been on a few Indy podcasts,(although I dinnae ken the boy if he's interested or not) he probably would be a very good candidate for a councillor or MSP.

 

It's a double-edged sword. The SNP are popular. Massively popular. Where in the western world can a government of 8 years be polling 40% ahead of the opposition? Not even the ANC have this much support. Some may think, strike whilst the iron is hot as when will we get the chance again? I think we have to bide our time a bity for now, and let's see what happens within these next few years of a Tory UK government, an EU referendum, and the effects of austerity begin to kick in.

 

We have to learn from the mistakes before we go again. We have to find out why people voted No, and if they are ever to be swung? The currency was not strong, and we were constantly on the back foot. It would have helped having at least a merely wee bity bias media rather than full on propoganda we seen the 10 days before the vote, or the subtle 'Yes, No, final wee dig at Yes' on Reporting Scotland as such.

 

I know of two people who were No - one didn't vote, but both are now Yes and whilst I don't think 'The Vow' had much of a swing factor, he says he regrets his vote.

 

It'll be interesting to see what the party will do. Put an Indyref option in there under certain circumstances? I believe they'll go for a  Home Rule one rather, and that's when it'll get interesting, especially if we vote Yes to that.
