Get annoyed at me for questioning both the strategy and commitment of some in the SNP on the future direction for another independence referendum. Well below is part of the reason.
I’ve been noting on this blog for some time now that I was not convinced that the SNP want to hold indy2 anytime soon,and that their recent tactics would indicate delaying. Pete Wishart all but confirms this tonight.
There is no reason to delay calling and fighting for another vote. Yes we might lose, and if we did lose given our current circumstances under the worst Tory Government ever, well we would never win a referendum anyway and don’t deserve independence.
However. We also saw in the last one that the vote can shift once the campaign starts and we don’t start on 24%, or there abouts, like the last time, we start on 45%. It’s time for the SNP to show they are the party of independence and lead, stop playing Westminster’s Brexit game and lead from the front, if you can’t then it’s time for the members to put a leadership in place who will.
