I like Alba. I genuinely do. I like their clear message that there needs to be urgency surrounding holding another independence referendum.

But their members on Twitter are just far too angry at other folk (especially existing SNP members). It puts people like myself off becoming a member.

@Murchie I am an Alba member, I don't engage with those kind of shouting matches. I also don't tend to block anyone as I do like to see views from others regardless of what stance they take. It really saddened me to leave the SNP and I have had my fair share of name calling as a result. There are a number of reasons why I left which I won't go into here. I do see the negativity coming out on social media between the party members on both sides which is even sadder when we share the same end goal. I don't harbour any hate for anyone I just want to get Indy done (or at least make progress towards it) before it's too late.

@FullerScot I'm with you Stephen. It's a far cry from 2014. I totally get the frustration Alba members have. But there needs to be a far better outlet than raging at folk on Twitter.

Same goes for SNP members who are angry at people leaving their party and claiming it "splits" the vote etc. etc.

Are there plans for Alba to start doing their own marches, for example?

(btw, I note The Hub hasn't pulled through your websites newsfeed, I'm working on it!)

@Murchie I don't see Alba holding thier own separate marches, the way I see it this would still be under a YES banner with those from all or no political parties. That is the way it should be, the independence movement coming together and mingling for a common cause with all other differences put aside.

@FullerScot I think a big march like that is desperately needed to defuse a lot of the tension.
