Send in the Clowns!

So, the latest wheeze from the Tories to save the Union, is to pack up Prince and plank them down in Holyrood Palace in Scotland to make us all feel more British! Clown Prince coming to Scotland? Honestly who comes out with this nonsense?  Is it really a bunch of out of touch Tory politicians … Continue reading Send in the Clowns!

SNP: Give us something to vote for!

The two-vote system for the Scottish Parliament always seems to confuse some voters.  The constituency vote is straightforward, a first past the post election, similar to the vote used for UK General Elections, where the candidate with the most votes gets elected.  However, it’s the regional list vote (sometimes called the 2nd vote) which leads … Continue reading SNP: Give us something to vote for!
