What a classic out-of-touch-with reality, in-the-bubble quote. He’s got to be joking. He’s not. He needs to get out more. He needs to read more.
Has he not seen the last two polls and especially the Herald one today giving the SNP an overall majority of 3 and, not counting the Greens, giving them on constitutional matters, a majority of 19?
I guess this was written before Nicola’s not guilty verdict but ‘implosion’, really. On what planet?
A massive lead, barely nibbled at for years now, despite regular media saturation bombing of the the FM, the SNP and the SG. Half the infection levels and far less deaths due to superior pandemic management. Up to 16 000 new members.

Where did he get the time for all those other interests? Heidies I knew had to be in first, out last, daily and during holidays.
