Unionist parties dominated the first preference vote.
Wee Nicki quick to jump in after the results to say that the Council elections shouldn't be about independence.
Report akabula May 7, 2022 6:10 PM BST
55% for the Unionists and 45% for the Nationalist.
Nothing has changed from 2014. Sturgeon hasn't taken the cause forward by even a fraction of a percent.
The call for independence is in a rut and Sturgeon can't do anything about it.

This is the totally undemocratic problem. The Scottish people have given their government a mandate to seek an independence referendum by voting for a majority of independence supporting parties at Holyrood. How can it be democratic or fair in any form for the PM to refuse to grant that request?

What has that got to do with Scottish independence lapsy?
Actually no need to respond as we all know the answer is nothing.

Quite a bit and given it is yourself i'll explain, Scotland and Northern Ireland both have devolved govts,he lied to the NI one and he'd lie to you(Scotland) just as quick.
The NI unionists a victim of the Torys false promises,he shat on them so the Torys could win an election.

Never trust a Tory.

So it doesn't have anything to do with Scottish independence.
Despite everything thats happened the snp are stuck on 45%.
Now has changed since 2014. Wee Nicki is a failure. Happy

You are a bit naive if you think a SF majority in NI and in the EU won't have an influence on Scotland.

At Westminster, SNP MPs will also press the UK government to match the Scottish Government’s commitment to legislation within this parliament. In addition to reforming gender recognition law, SNP MPs will push the UK government to allow non-binary people to record their gender as “X” on passports and all other UK-wide records and identity documents. Fantastic stuff from Ferguson & Co

Mean while .. Nowhere in Europe do more people die from drug abuse than in Scotland. This sad record is the result of social problems, political failure – and a deadly mix of heroin, cocaine and street Valium.

But lets Make sure the X on documents is sorted , that's the main thing .

On the contrary, the SNPS record at both Holyrood and Westminster at the ballot box is exceptional.
Report politicspunter May 9, 2022 4:48 PM BST
The decision on another referendum is (wrongly) completely out of the hands of the elected Government at Holyrood. It's entirely the decision of Boris.

Out of interest, any constitutional experts tell me what's to stop Sturgeon calling a referendum and saying it's non-binding. Run it as normal but knowing it won't lead directly to independence but hoping that a big enough vote would force Johnson's hand.
Report akabula May 9, 2022 5:13 PM BST
It would be illegal Porkie.
Sturgeon hasn't the powers to hold a referendum and calling it non-binding would not circumvent the legislation.

As the following link shows, that with only 29% of Scots voters in favour of a referendum, Sturgeon hasn't a mandate for one.

Seems a strange thing to say.
Looks like desperation to me on learning that the majority in Scotland, according to latest polls, want to remain in the Union.
TBH Honcho it would be refreshing to get a reply without the normal abuse. TIA m8.

That's an interesting thought pp. Just think it might get the same result as last time and any other time for a while. And if it did, would it change owt? No. SNP, quite rightly as is their concept will just keep on demanding a referendum til they succeed or fall off the chart.
