The SNP are so powerfully entrenched and Wee Nippy herself is such an adept stirrer of the pot, that Unionists have really got to get clever. So we need all your ideas.
As Hughie Green would have said, “I mean that most sincerely.”
What on earth is wrong with keeping tabs on this difficult unfinished business?
All of us should read the links that Henry Hill provides - deeply illuminating. I am no fan of Sturgeon whatever but Salmond is surely discredited by his behaviour - it does not need to be proved a criminal offence.
Finally I applaud your comments about latent authoritarianism in Scotland. We have perhaps dumped Christianity - you could say the jury's out - but have certainly kept the less attractive features of Calvinism.
But the question is enormously important and I applaud Mr Palmer for having a go and not keeping his head down.
I suppose it is tinkering at the margins, but most new houses that I have seen look luxurious in some ways but all the rooms are too small, often the gardens are tiny border strips between houses far too close together, and if you build a shed you lose most of the garden. We have to build enough space and sound construction to make every house a real house rather than a “first step on the housing ladder”.
At the moment we’re spending huge sums building houses nobody really wants.
Thanks Mr Palmer and we must all do better.
But .. can anything be done to tackle the downside of the safe seat? Primaries?
SNP support seems to be at the level where a few points up and down wins or loses them large numbers of seats. Like the Tories in England they benefitted last month from a split opposition and an unelectable Labour party, and duly recovered most of their 2017 losses. But they can go down again and I hope that over time my friends will perceive that Brexit is a good thing and will turn away from the SNP.
Those in England rightly disgusted by everything about the SNP should beware dancing to their tune. As Hill says (see the link in his final sentence) fostering anger in England is one of the SNP’s key strategic aims.
