How’s that for an unusual headline? Will it intrigue or deter. I’ll tell you later.
Now, sitting next to a pile of SNP leaflets and planning to pound the streets gently (arthritis) delivering them this afternoon, I am absolutely not breaking ranks at this crucial time, but I do wish the FM would step back and concentrate her fire on the real opposition.
However, it matters little:
‘Yes supporters, ‘the troops’ do not read the Herald and so tales of schisms and civil wars have little if any affect in heating up their tempers.’
That’s my thesis.
What’s my evidence?
First, after a wee dip at the peak of Opposition/MSM carpet bombing of the First Minister around the televised mock trials and reports, Yes is back in the lead consistently and SNP support looks likely to produce an overall SNP majority in Holyrood next month.
Second, I just launched a twitter-poll which might provide controvertible proof that Yes supporters won’t touch the Herald with a barge pole, even a wipeable plastic one.
At the time of writing, with 52 votes in, 96.2% do not agree that Yes supporters read the Herald. I’ll update this later to prove my findings are statistically probable.
