I like Patrick Harvey and the Greens, the New Lass, Lorna Slater comes across well 

 

Ill probably go full green after Indy . Well SNP first election then green afterwards, if im still alive that is 😉 

I really hope the turn out is over 50%, as that would be a big stick for teh Yoons to beat us over teh head with.

 

The young vote is engaged this time like never before, so hopefully.

I read both the tamb (although much less frequently these days) and wings and if you want to read pages and pages of personal abuse (a lot of it directed at Stuart Campbell funnily enough) and mindles

No , I will reply. I havent launched anything I have replied to your post.  Its your tone and attitude to the idea that people may not agree that SNP 1 /ALBA 2 is the best option. I am still genuine

You are doing a pretty good job of bullying and intimidating folk yourself. Its not a pantomime to be giving consideration to who you want your vote to go to.

No idea on turnout.  It's been a pretty flat campaign for a couple of reasons.  Covid restrictions have stopped a lot of the set piece events which tend to get things going and get people enthused, also there's a sense of inevitability about the result - clearly the SNP will be the largest party and will form the next government, all that's in doubt is whether or not that will be with an outright majority.   However, I saw a recent poll - Lord Ashcroft I think - which said that SNP voters were more determined to vote than any other party.

There are however just under 200,000 more people on the electoral register than in 2016 and there will obviously be a much higher proportion of postal voters.

And no Subway hide and seek. That's one of my most favorite election moments, ever. :lol:

Whit colour is the  of paper is the list ballot? I've heard it described as orange and peach. It can't be both surely 🤔

Anyway my list vote is going to Alba I've decided. Fingers crossed its not a bad move 🤞

Mibbe am interested in the aesthetics of the occasion 🤔

Anyway you sure it's purple? Might be lilac?

I'm not against Alba and I would like to see them return Eck and possibly a couple more, but their supporters on Twitter are just awful, TBH.

Look at that Wings tweet about if you vote Lib, SNP, Green - just very nasty, and almost cult-like.

Me too.

It's an informed choice on my part based on 4 previous votes in ma hoose. 2 x SNP/SNP and 2 x SNP/Green have only returned yoons. Admittedly a wee bit of a shot in the dark but I think Alba might do well in my area 👍

I think Lorna Slater's been a breath of fresh air, and has been more bold and outspoken about independence than Nicola Sturgeon (that wouldn't be too hard, some might say). The Greens don't have a 14 year government record to defend and can point out the bits they did achieve by supporting the SNP. I can imagine they would appeal to the 'younger generation' and maybe urban/vegetarian population not directly affected by jobs in the oil industry and farming, but can afford to be a bit idealistic. I'd say what matters for indy is that the greens count as a pro indy party (just as Labour counts as unionist, however many of their voters are pro indy). They also have a record in how they have behaved in parliament, as far as I can see generally constructive though sometimes applying pressure but providing the crucial support when most needed.

Coven - really?  Nothing like a casual bit of misogyny on a Tuesday lunchtime.

 

Misogyny?  Pish.  No, I'm thinking more of the witches at the beginning of Macbeth.  That tweet by Kirsty Blackman about a committee of 5 men and 5 transwomen being gender balanced in her opinion sums them up.

Opinium poll was coming from a particularly high water mark but seems closer to yougov and other polls with sampling within the last week. 
 

The ones released over the weekend with 1 week old sampling showing snp dip now look out of date.  
 

If Greens hit 13% that would be remarkably good. Think this is the only poll that’s placed them that high but I think they’ll do well.

For most Tory list voters it will be orange.

I was wrong then, but will 99% of the population think you look stupid?   I think it is Ahlapa by the way so look like a fud 😄
