Angus Robertson emptying c***s is definitely good news.

Just like he emptied Libya.

Let's go over to Henry McLeish.

"So Henry, how many dozens of splinters are in your arse these days after years of sitting on the fence?"

6.5% Tory to SNP swing for Angus Robertson to take Edinburgh Central. Interesting that the Green vote is down almost a third on last time, to under 10%. Looks like Green tactical votes helped him over the line.

We seem to be moving to a 'not the SNP franchise' built around the personalities of various individual politicians who happen to be in one or other party. Quite a weird thing to think about.

It is like if a unionist recognises a name that isn't SNP on the ballot they will stick a cross next to them.

Henry McLeish is still on that massive fence he's sat on since 2014!

Yup.

I think it had potential to be one of those things that snowballed, but the people involved just turn the stomachs of the majority. The only folk I saw seriously mooting voting for them were delusional transphob... sorry 'Gender Criticals' who were buying the 'women's rights' shite, seemingly happy to overlook who exactly the figurehead of the party is and the personal politics of a few other candidates. I told them they were just engaging in a daft wee circle-jerk and shouting at each other in an echo-chamber, but no, supposedly they hold the same views as a 'silent majority' when it comes to trans issues :1eye

Difficult to do much of anything with no popular support, a leader who is less well thought of than Boris Johnson, and when the only people you can coalesce around you are those with an irrational hatred they like to dress up as something it simply is not.

It's not transphobic to have a Citizens' Assembly to discuss GRA, which is ALBA's policy.  All people concerned, could then hopefully reach a rational compromise, after having their views on the issues pertaining to it heard.  Is that unreasonable?

Some women obviously disagree with the position that debate or discussion needn't take place on this.

Wonder what cabinet job Angus will get?

I wondered if he'd get Freeman's job. Even if he's not overly qualified, his delivery of the messages would certainly be more convincing.

Unpalatable or uncompetitive. The Tories never had a chance in NE Fife or Edinburgh Western anyway.

Though I was always surprised the Tories didn't ride to Jo Swinson's rescue in 2019. 

Having grown up in Strathkelvin and Bearsden/Dunbartonshire East, I'd be fairly confident in suggesting a large swathe of Tories already voted for Swinson.

Henry Mcleish speaking sense for the most part. Sounds very pro independence

SNP hold Greenock & Inverclyde. Small reduction in majority. Swing to Labour of 1.7%.

Doesn't bode well for Dumbarton

Just wondering how you even remotely equate the result in an entirely different constituency to Dumbarton? That said I think Baillie will win anyway, just a bizarre conflation?

That was my take as well. Shows Labour’s problems. Many Labour people support tacitly independence but are afraid to say so.

I agree. I think she'd have been a lot more unbearable if she was confident.

I wouldn't think that the two are correlated that much. The incumbent SNP MSP isn't pulling up any trees and every single opposition party - as in every fucking campaign for the past decade - have been peddling shite about the local hospital being turned into the tent round the back of Aintree during the Grand National.
