Default Salmond Makes a Comeback

ALBA PARTY LAUNCHED BY ALEX SALMOND – YOURS FOR SCOTLAND (wordpress.com)

SNP Leadership, especially carpetbaggers, careerists and the WokeFolk are not happy.

What's happening here? Is Salmond is trying to split the SNP vote (ultimate revenge on Sturgeon) or is genuinely trying to provide an alternative disaffected SNP voters?

You have to understand the voting system for Holyroo, There is a Cponstitiuency vote (FPTP)To get some balance there is alo a "LIST" which we choose in our second vote. Counting is weighted so the more votes a party gets in Vote 1, the more diffoicult it is get votes on The List. BBC Alba, along with some other small parties is staning only on The List.

If this kind of thing interests you google "d'Hondt" electoral system

As a recent arrival back into UK,it appears to me that both Scotland & England need a newly-formed party.However I do wonder,as said by Shard,if this is a grudge decision by Alex Salmon.Perhaps it would have been wiser for this new party to have chosen a different Head & Salmon taking a lesser title even though he initiated this group.

Media and SNP Leadership are trying to turn this into an issue of Personality. It is not aboiut Salmond v, Sturgeon. It is about tactics, policies, ideas , and the Road to Independence.

Scottish Prism 27th Mar 2021 – Iain Lawson - BarrheadBoy

Blogs are ofetn a better guide to what is going on than the scribblings of journalists. Here iain Lawson explains that this is not "about one man;s ego" as SNP Leadership and mainstram Media contend. It is about policies, tactics and ideas on our road. For years SNP leadershipo have stifled debate and discussion, by adopting a "Party Line". Teminds me of the CPGB under Harry Pollitt !

For some reason, I always thought that Katha Pollitt was Harry Pollitt’s daughter, but now I think they are not related ...

Do those blogs suggest that there is actually enough support for a move to independence? After Indy-1, Brexit and Covid, I cannot imagine there is sufficient appetite for yet more massive structural change. Even the motivation of Scotland rejoining the EU will be questioned by many in light of the EU's Covid response.

The polls suggest support for Indy has been growing. I am not a great believer in polls though. Public opinion is not unitary and there are divisions. My views are clear. We have to break away.

It will certainly be interesting to see what the poll on 6 May returns.
