Do you think PP will actually answer who he considers isn't dross?
Report feedthepony March 31, 2021 3:01 PM BST
I'd imagine with him being a Tory the list of SNP he considers dross will be substantial - give him time

I don't think he will. I think we can all presume that his usual view will be that anyone who leaves the SNP becomes dross or an X, Y, Z thereafter.

We should maybe start a game where we list SNP MP's and guess what PP would say about them after they have defected to Alba.

E.g

Joanna Cherry = Transphoboic bigot with outdates views who was holding the party back
Ian Blackford = Fat bloated sausage muncher who was an embarassment and good to be rid of.

Perhaps you should once more clarify your definition of aftertiming. Most of us on here haven't met mates for several months or a year.

Not using anythng scientific to back this up - just my own common sense.

These new parties will disapear into non existence after a poor showing (Only Salmond, and an outside chance of Galloway, will get in).

Tories will stay the same - Tories ain't voting for anyone else but Ross is totally unelectable for non-Tories

Labour will make the gains and return as a force in Scotland now the crazies have gone and they have a leader people can like.

SNP will win without a majority but their lead and share will have been reduced significantly by Labour.

Report politicspunter April 1, 2021 10:45 AM BST
I think Labour will make some progress but it's very difficult for it to be significant in terms of seats. If they were to win the three constituency seats I mentioned on the other main Holyrood thread (East Lothian, Dumbarton, Edinburgh Southern) then they would probably lose an MSP from the respective regional list for these constituencies. Sarwar will be trying to increase their MSPs but possibly more importantly, overtake the tories for second place, thus ensuring as the main opposition in Parliament, he gets first replies at questions.

Alex Salmond’s hopes of returning to frontline politics and securing a “supermajority” for independence at May’s Holyrood election are doomed,  shock new Alba Party polling has suggested.

The Survation poll, carried out exclusively for DC Thomson, found the former first minister’s pro-independence party, Alba Party, to be seriously lagging behind the other major parties – with only 3% of Scots saying they would offer support at the ballot box.

I never suggested there was a legal reason. The decision on who takes part is made by the broadcaster with the guidance of Ofcom. As I mentioned earlier, normally the parties invited are the ones with parliamentary representation and/or a consistently high opinion poll intention. Alba currently cannot be considered to qualify on that guidance.

The 'all over for salmond' headlines may have been premature, presumably an attempt to kill them off from the start. If they're polling at 6% in north east that must be knocking on the door for a seat, I'd guess support would be more likely to go up than down as the election gets closer.
