I this like the times when only the bookies seem to really know what is going on? Politicians of all types look straight down the camera lens and swear blind that something is or is not the case but the bookies are offering good odds that they are wrong.
Several politicians, from Labour, Lib Dems, Greens and the SNP have predicted confidently for us that no one will vote for the Alba Party but the Tories are acting like they know the wolf is at the door.
But, first, that word, ‘charge.’ Where did that come from? The Telegraph is connected to the powerful in the Tory establishment. Maybe it means nothing. They own the pollsters. Maybe they know something.
So perhaps, someone has told them what is really likely to happen here and they’re scared like folk who fear losing their jobs. Look at what they have done.
First they offered an alliance with Labour and the Lib Dems. Now they’re talking about standing down in favour of them in certain ‘areas’ to help them deny the Alba Party list seats. Isn’t this previously unimaginable behaviour?
