Both votes SNP or not? That is the question.

19 Apr

Posted to Facebook and on Twitter needs sharing will down to brother in Liverpool he might even share around there.
Now my reply, More thought provoking for all of us, good stuff. Your logic is sound but I do see the list as an insurance policy if we don’t get all those constituency seats. I just have that bad feeling about this election. Somehow if possible I’d ask as many postal voters to let us know online how they voted. I know its a secret vote for good reasons, main two are bribery and intimidation, but if we could get some numbers and area voted in we may be able to see if postal votes were safe. I think this will be my last election by going to vote in person all future ones will be postal for me. Health getting worse, fell into lighting up again. Bought the Tabex to help me get back off them again, breathing is getting harder and pained cravings get to strong. Must succeed this time.

It is not the first time that the Both votes SNP has been questioned, and no doubt the argument for and against will rage on indefinitely until such times as either the voting system changes or we get Independence.
Personally In my opinion it doesn’t stand water.
I can see why the SNP leadership pursue it, but I doubt their reasons have anything to do with gaining Independence. Being a political party, they are behaving the way that all other political parties normally behave, that is because they don’t want you voting for anyone else but themselves, irrespective if that stance hinders Independence or not.
Now this is something I would never have considered or even entertained a couple of years ago,but given how antagonistic some in the leadership has been towards anyone who might think differently to themselves has been, I have begun to believe that is the case.

How Not to make friends and Influence people

This election is for our country and so many cant see it WHY? I cant work it out needs somebody smarter than me to fathom it out. I do wish we could come together and work on the good of ourselves instead of petty squabbles getting out of hand. Squabbles becoming big fights and no purpose served in our quest for independence. It will be a case of, after the election, if only! and then we make up and maybe even become friends again and restart the work, we don’t need to we can do the job this time if we really want to or are there too many infiltrators among us nudging some of us on and egging up the voices. Remember how Ireland had a civil war after regaining independence looks like we maybe in for something similar not as bloody I hope but bitter fighting, without any agreements only for spite.

Auld Acquaintance

Prior to the last minute announcement of Alex Salmond and the appearance of the Alba party on the scene I was so downhearted that I was seriously considering not voting at all in the upcoming Scottish Parliament Election.

I didn’t feel that I could give the SNP my vote after the debacle of the Salmond affair and all that had come out in the Holyrood enquiry. Nor could I understand why they were seemingly intent on holing their chances and our chance of Independence under the waterline by introducing 2 seriously contentious issues as the Hate Crime Bill and the Trans rights issue just prior to election.
I had watched the run of 22 positive polls for Independence come to an end during all of these things. To say that I was seriously depressed about it all would be an understatement.

I had however joined the Independence for Scotland party…
