Doc – can’t argue with the fact that the voting system has empowered the SNP at Holyrood – my objection to you and yours is that you refer to the “Scottish people’ this and the ‘Scottish people ‘ that, as if you had their full backing. The SNP do not represent the Scottish people. If you had got something well over 50% of the Scottish people’s vote then maybe it would be acceptable, but by your own statements you only got 22.5% . It is arrogance to claim that you in any way represent the other 77.5%

  • That last paragraph implies the ‘ flower power era’ is about to make a return.
  • Well doc – I was trying to soften the blow by rounding up your 22.5% to 24% – I thought it would appear more friendly !
  • You are forever talking about ‘The Scots’ as if you represent everyone in this country – please take a telling for this is not the first time I have had to point it out to you – you don’t – the SNP got only 24% of the vote at the last election – so let me see – 100% minus 24% = 76%.
    OOoops – looks as if you are well outnumbered 3 to 1.
  • As in – Communities Against Turbines Scotland
  • Or perhaps he is just a very clever/ devious headline grabber.
