Unpopular or what, SNP Leader Nicola Sturgeon’s fake SNP manufactured popularity hits the skids with an incredible 12 point drop as public turn away from her, is the slide going to continue or can the SNP prop her up to get over the 2017 Council elections?

Dear All

Yesterday Nick Clegg was wittering on about how difficult it would be to fight a second indyref because of the Brexit situation.

What a difference a day makes!

A new poll shows that the Brexit vote has not increased demand for second independence referendum, the SNP have high their peak, they have been buoyed up by the resentment of voters and being the vessel of a protest vote.

But over time, their popularity will fade; their record in government will do for them coupled with the lack of headway by the leadership over independence.

As I mentioned Scotland is in political flux, the old established order is crumbling and people aren’t as loyal to parties as they previously were, after all, what is the difference; the days of the Great Debate are a relic of a forgotten past.

Out goes vision, in comes tat and micromanagement by people bereft of ideas, in a country beset by problems, nothing is fixed and nothing is getting achieved.

In what must be consider startling from the Ipsos MORI poll for STV News opposition leader Ruth Davidson has overtaken the First Minister in satisfaction ratings, the Tories spent circa 35 years in the political wilderness.

Their USP which they played to get back into frontline politics was unionism, as they leeched voters away from other parties who went ‘wishy washy’ on the union, the Tories stepped in and hovered up the votes.

One of the major victims of the leeching was the Scottish Labour Party, pushed into third place by the Tories under Ruth Davidson.

52% supported remaining in the UK while 48% back independence, some do because of dogma, others do for love of country but there is a huge group who basically hate the English and Scottish independence is their proxy vehicle to help them achieve this.

When the issue of timing was thrown in the mix, the news becomes even worse for unpopular Nicola Sturgeon who is pretty pegged to holding an independence referendum as leader.

Something she can’t deliver and she knows it.

Support for a second ballot in the next two years is only just able to hit the 41%, mark while 54% opposed a re-run.

The window of opportunity only lasts a certain time in politics, because all politicians have a shelf life if they promise something and don’t deliver or deliver and don’t get the result they expected.

Check out David Cameron, promises an EU referendum, probably expected to win it like the Scottish independence one and he blew it. When for a stunt called re-negotiation in Europe and the EU leaders just dug in and said no, crumbs were offered and when this was presented to the British people, they had had enough.

Leaving Europe would be a bad thing, but we aren’t leaving Europe, we are leaving the European Union a political organisation which is anti-country and anti-worker. Time will show how this was in the national interest with the issues of national security and economic security at the forefront.

I suppose the interest part of the polling which interests me and probably some others is that Nicola Sturgeon’s SNP manufactured popularity has fallen by a huge 12 percentage point drop.

The reason is failure in government, not doing the day job and vacuous, inept and shallow, you cannot fool the people all the time, is a well-known saying, the chickens are coming home to roost for her, and not just in the Constituency she part time represents badly, Govanhill is a slum.

Mark Diffley, director at Ipsos MORI Scotland, said:

"The summer was dominated by the fallout from the Brexit vote and the impact it may have on support for independence. It is clear from this poll that, despite the UK-wide vote contradicting the wishes of the majority in Scotland, Brexit has not resulted in a surge in support for independence. However, at 48% among committed voters, it remains entirely possible that a second referendum campaign could be won by supporters of independence."

Never a dull moment, and with the Council elections in 2017 getting prep up, Scotland’s council seats are up for grabs, the SNP is slipping can their fake manufactured popularity carried over from 2014 hang on or will the slippage create opportunities for others.

The SNP better start to 'break out' the young kids for Nicola Sturgeon to hug and do 'selfies' with, the illusion of 'caring Nicola must be wearing rather thin now, maybe a top up is required!

I just wish that the snp would get on with sorting out the mess they have made of Scotland instead of keeping harping on about independence.

Arsehole Brian Murray can't spell, neither can anonymous at 4.14pm. They're getting worried George, the NATZ sheep are out in force trying to lift support for "dead duck Sturgeon" hahaha. Useless witch.

Seems that the criticism levelled at George emanates from the same brainless morons who created so much mayhem in St George's Square in Glasgow when the result of their "voting power' could barely be discerned from the idiocy that accompanied their 'weegie'
background. Once the Scottish people realise what alien culture purports to represent them there can be little doubt what the result will be seen in the ballot box.

Well said - it was always going to be a matter of time before people saw through their blatant populist drivel - as I expected the only support they'll be left with is the 'inde at all cost' fanatics who don't listen to reason and there just aren't enough of them

Even the thickest must have seen this happening. The sooner she gets ousted the better off we all will be. We dont want europe. We dont want migrants. We dont want a named person scheme or gealic bloody road signs. It is incredible she has not been booted out of the snp as the list goes on and on and on. Twice now she has destroyed the snp. Why is she being touted so much? I think the snp membership should be asking. why no one else has a vision or a chance to run the snp?

Sturgeon is like Corbyn and Co. They'll promise castles in the sky, as long as folk believe it they'll keep promising. The mess she has engineered in Scotland (and it is engineered) the Scots will be paying for, for years to come. He self interests and Nationalistic Dogma is evident, Scots should wake up and smell the coffee before she wrecks Scotland forever. Look at her own constituency Govanhill....says it all...anyone reckon she is good for the voters in Govanhill.....anyone asked them???
