One or two Herald writers have a thing about predicting the destruction of the SNP.
Time after time, they get it wrong, but keep on getting paid to do it all over again.
At least, this time, Neil Mackay seems to know it’s a fairy tale he’s spinning, like that old witch in Sleeping Beauty:
LIKE all good fairytales, there are myriad versions of The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg. However, every telling compromises the same basic elements and ends with the same stinging moral.https://www.heraldscotland.com/opinion/23139252.destruction-scotlands-nhs-will-spell-defeat-snp/
We’ve had Macwhirter, Gordon, McKenna, Smith and Mackay all sensing defeat for the SNP over the last decade but their predictions never survive a collision with the evidence. See this:
47.7% in May 2021, 46.6% average in the last 5 polls. That’s a fairy tale too.
