My prime commitment is to independence, not to party. My commitment to SNP is strategic/tactical - they're best able to deliver
#BothVotesSNP alienate non-SNP YES parties? Maybe. But if it did, it would signal a greater commitment to party than to independence.
The ENTIRE vote of YES supporters of ALL indy parties will be a giant tactical signal of Scotland's independence intent. Plurality can wait.
The resolve of the YES electorate can best be demonstrated by SNP, the party that got us
#indtref1 holding every seat and even gaining some.
Don't think polls indicate every SNP Holyrood seat's safe, incl.constituency ones. THEY DON'T. One lost seat would be hailed as a UK victory
Monday National: "..whether it's worth the risk for Yes voters to try to get other pro-indy parties elected." No - it's not

Misuse of "begs the question" in

@moridura in Iraq and Syria and refugee crisis UK created, with EU bearing the brunt.
What does YES Brexit argument say? It says "Let's help Unionist rUK take us out of EU and into dangerous waters with UK's hand on the tiller
R.I.P. Terry Wogan. All my memories of him are happy ones - of a great, natural broadcaster and a fundamentally decent human being.
Beware of unionists telling us that BREXIT under UK will give us more independence. If you believe that, pour some cauld watter on yer heid!
The argument that EU membership is incompatible with Scotland's independence confuses independence with inter-dependence - and it's unionist
#EUreferendum I believe BREXIT's bad for Europe, UK and Scotland. Some YES supporters disagree. I respect the view but, please - AFTER indy!
A YES supporter, voting OUT in
#EUReferendum lines up with the worst elements in UK politics - damages indy. EU is a decision for AFTER indy
@moridura I respect your view. But if you vote OUT before indy you'll damage independence

Let's be sure that in the May election, Scottish voters understand the system and use it well. Let's make sure that YES voters use it best!
@moridura control with parties, not enough with voters. But it's the best we've got so far
