Herald columnist Uzma Mir seems particularly uninformed. Leaving aside her puzzling notion about heads and hearts and her parroting of the usual myths of an incomparably high Scottish Covid death rate, this astounds:
The internecine warfare within the party is utterly unedifying and won’t do them any favours at the polls. The Conservatives no doubt will make slight gains under Douglas Ross, slightly riding on the coat-tails of Ruth Davidson, but I don’t think there will be enough time for the new leadership of Anas Sarwar to bed in to make a difference, although I do look forward to him taking part in the TV debates as he’s a principled and smart communicator.
Has she read nothing. The most recent polls show an increase in support for the SNP translating into an astonishing overall majority, after 14 years in power, and suggest virtually no impact of the ‘warfare’ on support.
The Conservatives will make gains? What poll suggests that? Even those suggesting a wee dip in SNP support do not imagine any converting to Tories.
Anas Sarwar is a ‘principled and smart communicator?’ Who thinks that?
Principled? As in this?
Smart? Why are Labour still in third place behind the Tories?
