Earlier today I posted a blog about my decision not to vote SNP this time and I explained why. My blog shares automatically on Facebook. I’m not surprised by a few of the comments it attracted.

Not surprised, but saddened. Come on, folks; you’re better than that.

    And I hoped you would be better than that as well ,better than to believe a headline in a newspaper , If you had watched her interview you would have seen that she did not say that she backed JC but would work with a progressive party and if that is to be for the good of the country then good on her and shame on you
    I can’t understand how you can abandon your party for a headline ,dear deary me

      Well, old mum, if you can find me another party of the left … in old Scottish councils the Progressives were stories … other than Labour, go ahead. I’m not the idiot she’s taken you for. My greater beef with Nicola is that she has positioned ‘my party’ as one of the fairly hard left, without the authority of the membership. That’s not the party I joined, and I am dead certain that I am not alone in that belief.

      And one more thing: don’t bloody patronise me.

    At least you are experiencing the sort of stuff that’s aimed at non-independence supporters in Scotland.

    I just read an article in the Edinburgh Evening News where she inferred she’d work with others to progress progressive policies. I must confess that the thought of Corbyn in number 10 scares me, let alone a Commie in number 11. I lived through the 3 day week and strikes and strife in the 70’s and have no desire to go back to that nonsense where the tail (Unions) wagged the dog (Government). That said, I’m still voting SNP as they have more chance of keeping Labour out in Scotland and medium term, people may yet see the benefit of independence.

      Medium term maybe, good buddy, but in the short term Corbyn must be crushed. If Nicola gives him an iota of backing, and she does, even if many of her MPs disagree but can’t rock the mid-election boat, that can’t stand. I would like to vote for George Kerevan, but I can’t, not until she rejects support for Corbyn unequivocally. My postal vote will be cast tomorrow so she better hurry up!
