Smitty has been right so far.
A quick run down by Robin McAlpine of the shenanigans, some of which are down right criminal, by those within SNP HQ.
btw - Wheesht for indie is no longer an option. It never was.

Some people seem a bit confused about why any of the candidates in the SNP leadership election would have any doubts about the process. Let me see if I can help them out...

I may not agree with some of her solutions, but I most certainly applaud the courage she and Ash Regan have shown in standing up among the SNP’s spineless silent ones and saying some of the things that members need to hear. Urgently and before it is too late."

The idea that the...
