Today in the Herald:
Willie Rennie has cast doubt on whether an SNP majority in the next Holyrood parliament would be a “legitimate” mandate for a second independence referendum. The Scottish Liberal Democrat leader said there were “many factors” to a mandate, including the conduct of the election campaign, not simply parliamentary arithmetic.
Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t democracy all about arithmetic? People turn out and your share of the votes is reflected in your share of the MSPs, 5 in the case of the Lib Dems, despite them attracting little support outside of the Northern Isles, Edinburgh Western and North East Fife.
Are any of the other four, less representative of the Scottish Electorate?
As for conduct of the election campaign, does he mean telling fibs? Like his rant on Question Time or this?
Insignificant AND untrustworthy.
