Pro-Indy Parties In “‘Want You To Vote For Them’ Row”

Advanced silliness on the Scotsman site yesterday, with no named journalist.


A row has broken out in the pro-independence camp over a giant SNP billboard campaign urging voters to use both of their votes to protect Nicola Sturgeon’s majority at Holyrood.

But Greens elections convenor Sarah Beattie-Smith said: “Greens agree a better Scotland is possible but voters know to achieve this we’re going to need a bolder Holyrood. That’s why the momentum on the regional vote in this election is with the Greens.”

SNP campaign chief John Swinney said; “We are the only party with the strength, the unity and the vision to take Scotland forward.”

This piece is basically “we’re bored and have nothing, so let’s have an SNP bad swing and see if something sticks”.

Unfortunately, as you can see from the comments under the ‘article’, some people obviously do.

What it boils down to is that the SNP want you to vote for them, and the Greens would prefer you vote Green. This is apparently a row and presumably means that an independent Scotland would fail or something.
