HATE THE SNP
NOT SURPRISING CONCIDERING THE PRESS THEY GET (see media section)
Will give some reasons later in this section why I think you should not hate the SNP.
For now lets accept you will never change your mind.
SNP are a centralist party, leaning to the left on social issues and a bit to the right when dealing with business.
You think they are not left wing enough ?
You think they are not right wing enough ?
You just hate the thought of Independence ?
a) Because you think Scotland would never prosper on it's own. Propaganda has got to you. Hopefully looking at this site & other sources of information you will realise they & our own have been lying to us for years. Scotland would have a more prosperous economy as an independent country than as part of the U.K (see section on economy).
b) You really want to be British, better off. Worse off doesn't come into your thinking. Fair enough. An honourable position. Providing you campaign honourably from that position & don't take part in the tsunami of lies designed to convince our population that we are a basket case unable to run our own affairs.
If you just want to be British what can I say. Governed for ever more by the worst of the British upper classes ????
For the rest of us there is hope.
Holyrood was designed to stop the SNP getting a majority. It's a good system designed so it is very difficult for any one party to rule unopposed. In normal times consensus politics would be required, meaning that to some degree, most of the views in our country would be heard. Left, right and centre.
Solves the problem.
Maybe in the first election in a newly independent Scotland, the SNP might get another overall majority. At the moment all the best performers are in the one party.
Unlikely this would happen in future elections. SNP would not stay together long enough in it's current form. People from the left would leave, possibly to Labour. People from the right would leave, possibly to the Tories. This would make both these parties stronger.
Hopefully our totally corrupted mainstream media would morph into something resembling an objective, independent media that would scrutinise our Government & society.
THE UNION SURVIVES
If this happens, it's unlikely the SNP will have another overall majority. Been in power for over 10 yrs. A tsunami of media misinformation against them. However they would be big favourites to have the most seats in Parliament, but unlikely to be in Government ?
LOOK AT THE COUNCIL ELECTIONS
SNP won several councils and were the largest single party in many more. Convention decree's that the largest party seeks to form a coalition to gain a working majority.
Sworn enemies Labour and Tories instead went into bed together to keep the SNP out.
If this happens we will lose the Government which despite many problems have Governed better than Labour or Tories ever did.
Look at the quality of individuals in the opposition parties. Not many as good as average.
SNP Gov would be replaced with an incompetent coalition, which would run the country into the ground. Any time Westminster said jump they would ask how high.
They would be fully backed by an obedient media & the country would go to hell.
IT'S OK TO CHANGE YOUR MIND
