Told you it would be fine (smug mode switch on)

New coalition 20

The rest 16

    My guess is that the SNP would not be willing to work with the current crop of local Lib Dems and I can understand that entirely.

    If they are confident they have the necessary numbers for the new coalition to become the new administration then I see no reason to do a deal with councillors who they have little respect for or trust in.

  • Could it just be that, unlike you, Donald realises that whether or not Scotland gets independence has practically nothing to do with local politics.

    Just maybe Donald Kelly is aligning himself to the people he believes have the best interest of A&B at heart. What a radical idea that is!

    Just for the record what is the Concervative & Unionist party line on working with the SNP?

    I see they don’t mind working together with the SNP in D&G or East Ayrshire whereas in other Councils they will work with Labour, others the Lib dems, others independents etc etc.

    Does the C&U set their party line on a council by council basis or are these hard and fast rules about never being allowed to stand again Scotladn wide?

  • You won’t. I realise that leaves me wide open to ridicule if you do but I am loudly confident.

    More interesting are the rumours about who else in Dick Walsh’s fun factory tried to persuade McCuish to let them flee the sinking ship.

  • I have it on good authority (that is just for you Simon) that this is all total nonsense.

    Tomorrow will see the SNP led coalition as our new Administration.

    Who is stating that it won’t go ahead, all be it in a revised form?

    And they would have got away with it if it wasn’t for those pesky kids…

    (I’ll get my coat)

    The extent to which it is defective must be marginal if it got as far as appeals to the Supreme Court.

    Be interesting to see how much any revisions are actually material in terms of what is rolled out but my gut feeling is that they will be marginal and a lot of people happy at today’s ruling are going to be spitting blood.

    My personal view on this is that we are better without the thumbs up and down. They don’t mean anything and they just clutter the page. I think they are more of a trivial facebook/twitter thing than something for a forum.

    You also get people who simply use them just because they don’t like the poster regardless of what they say. I am pretty sure if Malcolm or NCH posted a story about a lovely old lady being recognised for her lifetime commitment to helping retired guide dogs there would be someone petty enough to give it a thumbs down!

    However I appreciate people might like them.

    It is probably worth being clear that this will not stop it being implemented – it just means there will be some amendments to it. Amendments which could have been got to without a stack of cash wasted on legal battles if politicians could be a little more grown up and a little less obsessed with never admitting they don’t know everything.

    Like indy1 it was a campaign packed with untruths from both sides and it further demonstrated that our politicians will say anything to hoodwink the public to voting their way. We are already seeing the Remain camp back pedalling on two of the claims they pedalled relentlessly in order to get votes.

    I think you’re pessimistic in terms of the number of previous NO voters that this will swing. Hardly scientific I know but I have been very surprised at the number of friends of mine who have already said they will now vote yes, some of them who were staunch No voters before. However I’m not basing this view on what a few of my mates say! There is just an inherent logic that such an issue is bound to cause a degree of swing toward Yes and we know that swing doesn’t need to be substantial.
