Ayesha Hazarika probably thinks she is smart in continuingly mentioning the Irish border. 

I think it's a cheap shot.

Depends on the Greens. Have they been over estimated again? 

17% to 18.1% in Edinburgh Central. 16.8% to 18.9% in Edinburgh Southern. 6.9% to 8.7% in Edinburgh Western.

Can’t be arsed looking at other regions, but definitely signs of an uptick across Edinburgh.

If Bailie wins, which looks likely, SNP will get 63 seats imo. Greens will take around 10. In fairness SNP have got around 47-48% of vote, so they take around 47-48% of seats. Its fair i guess, as its a fair electoral system.
Re. Tactical voting, I don't really blame the unionists, the country has decended into Yes v No. Nationalist vs Unionists. Thats it for the foreseeable

It is rumoured on twitter Bailie has won. 

SNP will have to hold all their seats they currently have and win another seat that isn't in south.

Keith Brown was on Radio Scotland earlier saying (when pressed on what would happen in the event of a non-majority) that a >50% SNP vote would be sufficient to put forward the Indyref2 argument.

You have to worry that the opposition parties will jump on that if the SNP get <50%.

Probably by about 2000. This 25 number seems like a load of pish

Even if they win a majority of seats with <50% of the overall vote, which would be understandable tbf as if he was acting like the overall should mean more than seat numbers then you can't just change your own rules if his scenario was inverted.  Stupid thing for him to say.
