No idea. Nope. All I know is that at the last election we had Scotland returned one Ukip MEP and beat the greens, and denied the SNP a third seat much to their happy clappers chagrin.

Unusual for the forum's resident psephologist to deny us another Mittens-esque prediction. Is it because you already know that UKIP will receive their ritual shoeing at the hands of the Scottish electorate in May, and again 12 months later?

How many seats do you think the SNP are going to win in May?

I think Ukip will win none in te GE they might get one via the list at Holyroo, who knows.

And when do you think the SNP will start to approve applications to start fracking <_<

As we are asking questions for no reason at all...Maybe tiny tears can have a shot as those.

UKIP's performance in the Euro elections, like every electoral event in living memory, highlighted the vast difference between Scotland and the UK's political outlook. That's not to say either are politcally homogenous, if you can find me saying Scotland isn't a pluralist country I'll send you a biscuit. It is true that UKIP's supporters are practically all - proportionally and literally - in England (including Wales).

Which is pleasing.

Since 2010, UKIP have practically never been off our TVs, have won a UK national election, a couple of by-elections and they're support in Scotland sits at 7%. They could barely be less popular here with the exposure they've had.

I can only assume they reached the amazing heights of 10% because the really hardcore Britnats found the complete disparity between British and Scottish politics to be utterly agonising and didn't want it proven too much. That was your excuse right enough.

I also think the SNP made a mistake with their "vote for us to stop UKIP" line. Talking about your opponents like that absolutely never works.

So their supporters are 'practically all' in England and Wales ?

True. Well apart from all their Scottish supporters.

Im absolutely LOVING the way the nat clown collective are so incredibly ruffled by a party thats about as relevant as the greens. All kinds of searching for reasons how the likes of Scotland could ever manage to elect a thoroughly English problem like Ukip.

Fucking tremendous.

Having that utter dipshit Ennoni traipsing around the forum after me whining about it since the Europeans has been hilarious too. The SNP, definitely NOT bothered about Ukip :lol:

Yes, you are right mate. That's three percent of their vote. That's their Scottish support.

UKIP got over 10% of the vote in the Euro Elections.

Their vote in Scotland would of course be much higher if the SNP didn't exist, as it doesn't in England for example.

They'll hardly get any of the vote in Scotland because they are a party of right wing imbeciles.

Why did they get over 10% of the vote in the Euro elections?

That's right - Scots normally vote for good guys like John Mason or Bill Walker, not scum like David Coburn. Oh.

I obviously don't like UKIP but they have their uses. They shine a massie light at every opportunity on a fact that must agonise Scotland-born British patriots; that Scotland and the rest of the UK are politially disparate.

Threads like this one, or any of the recent threads about UKIP winning elections in England, always produce a great deal of clearly ruffled behaviour, and it's not from "Nats".

; that Scotland and the rest of the UK are politially disparate.

Well, yes and no. We still have the same issues with racism, and xenophobia - the SNP hoover up much of that though, meaning it's slim pickings for UKIP.

Is that what you truly think, or is it just trolling, becuase honestly, were we to complie a list of organisations that support or have links to the main unionist parties and the wider campaignng to keep Scotland in the UK, I would suggest that the SNP probably didn't have too much luck with the xenophobes and racists.

Why would a racist xenophobe vote for a party which is supportive of EU membership and aims to increase immigration when they could just vote for a party specifically designed for them, UKIP. Edited by AberdeenBud

There are quite a few anti-English xenophobes in Scotland, who support Scottish independence not for the thought out reasons most on here do, but from a nationalistic perspective. Their philosophy I doubt is much different from anti-immigration, anti-EU types in England, it's just the target is different. I would suggest the former are unlikely to vote UKIP but would support the SNP.

Really? Evidence?
