Danger Danger Will Robinson!!!
It seems that Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond has been digging his own political grave for quite some time now with the help of Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
With the Scottish independence referendum more or less completely finished, people are turning their attention to the fact that Scotland has been put on pause by the Scottish National Party.
The pause is because the SNP Ministers abandoned their desks to chase the indy dream.
Now, with people looking at the SNP record, it is becoming increasingly that leaving the Scottish Government hanging in the wind wasn’t such a good idea. The decisions which are coming out are of course of such poor quality, people are waking up to realise that they made a mistake in 2011.
Labour has now edged past the SNP in voting intentions for the Scottish Parliament.
The Party has been steady collecting by-election wins leaving the SNP trailing a poor second.
Of course Alex and Nicola don’t give a shit; they are only interested in Holyrood.
But the slide has started and gaining momentum.
There will be many Glasgow SNP MSPs who won in 2011 now wondering how they are going to hang onto their seats.
Labour has drawn level with the Nats at 38% for the constituency vote.
How did that happen Alex?
But the real kicker which could spell real problems is that Labour has revved up and is three points clear in the regional top-up vote at 37%.
Translated into seats, it could leave Labour as the largest party at Holyrood in 2016.
The survey indicates a marked shift in opinion as people thought they had voted in a wildcat party to reform Scotland.
All they have had is a stranded whale on the beach since May 2011 when the SNP won 69 seats and formed a majority government.
The SNP’s ‘popularity’ was based on a five year council tax freeze and a weak Labour opposition at that time which was ineffective.
The SNP had a easy ride for four years in a minority administration as the Labour Party sulked.
Support for the Scottish Conservative Party under Ruth Davidson has slipped two points to 14% in constituencies and by one point down to 14 in the regions.
Ruth Davidson has struggled to change the fortunes of the Scottish Conservatives and many people will be asking what do they have to do to save their party from sinking further into the abyss?
It seems that Ruth Davidson needs a miracle.
The Liberal Democrats collapse more or less remains the same at 5% in constituencies but dropped one point to 5% in regions.
This is because of the ‘Clegg Factor’.
The public don’t appear to be forgiving them anytime soon.
Support for the Greens under Patrick Harvie has dropped from 7% to just 3%.
Patrick Harvie signed up to the doomed independence campaign, nailed his colours to the mast and is paying the price for it.
You know what I say?
Did even get anything out of it for his trouble in the Scottish independence campaign!
The Greens collapse in the regional vote makes them level with Ukip and the Socialist Party.
With the SNP leadership is rotting with evil from head down, and their desperation is increasing, they have fired their last bullet with the white paper being published.
Salmond says that Scotland’s future is in the hands of the Scottish people, so it looks like the SNP are getting sent a message by Scots.
We have had enough of you!
