I’m not reading it. You can’t make me. I’ve read enough of Gordon’s jaundiced journalism to know what’s in there.
I’ll just do the headline.
Pressure on Sturgeon over Indyref2 as leaders obsess?
Indyref 2 in the early years of the next parliament will be explicitly and upfront, in the manifesto for the SNP. Polls suggest they will take an overall majority, even with this commitment and despite perhaps losing one or two list seats to the Alba Party.
The Alba Party seems more than likely to take list seats from the Unionist parties. Witness their current panic.
There will be a very strong overall majority in support of Indyref2 and many will be pushing for it this year or next.
The FM may want to delay for a year at most to make sure voters see that the pandemic has been controlled but that’s all.
Little pressure on anyone other than on Ross and Sarwar.
