So Dundee West Chris Law SNP and Tess White Conservative candidates chose to not attend a hustings in Dundee West this week.
Now I voted for Chris Law in the last election, was with gritted teeth, but I voted SNP because I want independence. I also know a few folk who felt the same but this time a few are having second thoughts. There is a feeling that Chris just does not work as hard as he could for Dundee West, I’ve never seen him personally around the doors and only get a leaflet at election time.
There was no explanation as to why both Chris and Tess did not attend but it’s not a good look. While the SNP continue to soar in the polls it does feel like some of their recent internal issues make it look like they are taking that vote for granted. As I have blogged this election so far has been underwhelming to say the least and believe it or not I am still undecided as to how I will vote as it’s a Westminster election.
If my vote is purely about independence then I will go for the SNP, but if it’s about who will best represent me as an individual then Daniel Coleman of the Lib Dem’s would win hands down. I am lucky to know Daniel well and I know he would be by far the best MP for Dundee West, the only really issue is that Daniel is a Lib Dem and the party right now are neither.
So I won’t know until I turn up at the polling station how I’m going to vote on the day but I do wonder, regarding Chris Law and my one leaflet through the door, if the SNP actually want my vote.
