I guess what I’m saying is that it is unfair to dismiss completely Alba as zoomers when you are not willing to do the same with the SNP.

It depends. If I genuinely think Alba is full of nutcases (as in they have more nutcases than normal folk associated with them) but I think the SNP have a few nutcases but are largely alright, then it's not "unfair" to say so. It's just a reflection of what I think.

Half the country vote SNP and even though they tend to be the 'good guy' half, of course there are still bam pots in there. Who on Earth would think any different? What folk are saying is that Alba is basically a party of the bam pots, by the bam pots, for the bam pots.

I just hope Alba survives long enough for Joanna Cherry to inevitably f**k off and join them.

She’s too clever to do that and has too much to lose.  I can see her being a MAJOR negative force at the time of IndyRef2.

Hither and thither. Just stopped coming on here tbh and Killie being relegated didn’t exactly make me want to hurry back. Anyway…. 👋

Just what I was thinking. Welcome back, lad. I'm perversely enjoying being in the second tier, what with winning a few and looking good while doing it. Like the yo-yo years back in the 70's/80's. Well, one of the good seasons,anyway.

Thanks son x aye, I’m actually enjoying it too this season. Decent teams, decent wee stadiums and a squad who look like they give a f**k. 😀

The Alba party got 1.6% of the vote in the most recent general election, so to think they are to blame for a huge split in the indy movement doesn't have much credibility, unless they have more support than the election result shows. 

Personally I think it comes down to the indy now vs indy later folk, as well as the current Snp government implementing policies that some people think are more important than indy, which is meant to be the whole point of the Snp.  Add to that more people have seen the way the current government have ran the country during the pandemic and have decided that they don't want them in charge of an indy Scotland.  Which would be a shame because as things stand the Snp are the only realistic way of achieving independence and will be for the foreseeable future.  

I don't want a referendum held just now, we would almost certainly lose it.  We are nowhere near ready for another vote.

Not a coalition though, according to the government it is an agreement or something like that!  Huge split? Maybe not, but is it enough to cost the indy movement?

The 1.6% (or is it more, idk) were knocking at doors and delivering leaflets, taking an active part in politics.  Attending Nec meetings and their voices werent heard, still looks they arent heard because Snp members voted for a state owned energy company but the Snp Green agreement voted against it. Are either member led anymore.

A sorry state of affairs. 

The union has won.  Once again the biggest threat to Scottish independence has been the Scots themselves. We fucked in 2014.

Says something that it's ok to print his name, but they can't show a picture of the General Secretary of Alba on the off chance that somebody might recognise him.
