The Herald had the story for their poll today differently:
Exclusive poll: SNP set for knife-edge majority in Holyrood vote
14 years of total dominance of Scottish politics, heading for a 4th victory, perhaps an outright victory of the kind thought impossible in the Scottish system, averaging 50% and always up on the 2019 election, and that’s the story?
No journalist outside of the UK would see it that way.
Any student of electoral systems would be thinking:
‘Wow! That is ******* amazing! Has that every happened before in the context of a democracy far more fair and representative of its population than even England’s ‘Mother of Parliaments’ or the US ‘Greatest Democracy‘ where you can win with less than 40% of the people backing you?
Something very special is going on here. These politicians must be among the most trusted in history. You can fool some of the people some of the time but this is the most educated country in Europe so these folk must be doing something right, for them.
