Yes but he had a rebuttal for everything which the SNP faithful will swallow and trumpet.

A while back I said (to much ridicule) that I thought that the SNP machine had peaked. In June, I would like to see their Westminster numbers fall by around 10-12 seats but I don't want to see them wiped out yet. They also need to remain the largest party at Holyrood for some time to come.


Why? Because I strongly believe that over the next 2 -3 years, many more of their chickens are coming home to roost. Education deterioration, their devolved NHS spending, the mess that is Police Scotland - and they have just agreed to make it worse by merging in British Transport Police. Even the tame Committee convenor looking at that says its a bad idea.


Not to mention centrally managed infrastructure projects such as the new Queensferry Crossing and major road works and rail works, where costs are spiralling. Ever figured out how a couple of weeks of windy weather managed to delay completion by 9 months? It wouldn't be to do with allowing them to knock completion back to a further financial year with a new capital budget would it?


They need to remain in office in Scotland long enough to be held accountable instead of being voted out now and side stepping blame. I would however be delighted if Angus Robertson lost his seat at Westminster if only to underline that without him, their lack of talent would be further underlined. Would also be good if nasty man Wishart departed.


Mhairi Black for leader anyone?

Didn't the puir wee lass say she can't take it among all those "disturbing people" in Westminster? I assume she's referring to anyone with a different political viewpoint to her callow self. Like Tory MPs.

Wingswinger.
No, that is not the case. She has absolutely no debating skills, & is massively politically naive, & was torn to shreds each time she opened her mouth in the Commons Chamber. In a nut-shell the daft wee lassie cannae hack it.

So with the SNP losing seats (and the only council they held) and the Conservatives gaining over 160 seats (including some in areas that it would be unheard of before!), is this a clear enough indicator to the FM that the PEOPLE of Scotland DO NOT want another referendum?

Don't believe the BBC or Daily Mail.
The SNP did go from 425 seats to 431.The Tories have 276.
They are the biggest party in half Scotland's councils including Glasgow after 40years of Labour control.

Another fantastic result for the SNP , taking the largest % share of ther vote , largest number of councillors, taking control of Glasgow and completely humiliating the Tories, who stood on an anti independence ticket. Unionist parties lost and they lost big. The latest round of elections once again gave a ringing endorsement to the SNP and their demand for another referendum.

I have to laugh at the Tories, they broadly took the same % of the vote as Labour did in England and yet the unionist accolytes try to pass this off as a 'victory'. They were humiliated in Scotland, deal with it and yet that's something we won't hear from Ruth 'the rapist' Davidson.

450 seats to pro independence parties (SNP and Greens). 605 seats for pro union parties (Con, Lab and Lib Dem).
Hardly a ringing endorsement for independence!
I have ignored the Independent seats but the majority of those are from pro union areas.
Also a gain of 165 seats in any election is seen as victory.

Good to see the SNP doing so well, when they do even better in the election on the 8th June we can look forward to indyref 2 being equally as successful.

Indy Ref 2, nah never going to happen and Mrs May putting the Fish firmly back in her box on the matter shows that to be the case.

The only rings currently being run are by Mrs May as keeps, in order of importance/relevance, Corbyn, Farron, Nuttal and Sturgeon firmly on the back foot.

I refer to previous posts ....by me. Jings, the SNP implosion is even faster than I expected. How many Councils do they now control---that would be zero I think compared to 2 before the election?


Even our neighbour / friend managed to get himself elected for the toerees and helped to dump the SNP from being the biggest party in Perthshire, and it really looks like nasty man Wishart could be unemployed at Westminster come 9th June.


Dare I mention Ferguslie Park, where the elected Conservative at least had the honesty to admit it was a "bit of a surprise".

Thread bump with a bit of a heavy heart at the overall UK position and how May managed to achieve what she did. Still, Salmond and Robertson gone (and 19 others). End of Indyref 2/3/4/5/6/7/8/etc. me thinks. Can't see who on earth will lead the SNP in H of C. Mhairi Black?? Chris Law ??


Sorry D88 and Exrigger. Game over - especially when the SNP domestic failings are exposed more and more over the next few months. I think the mess that is Police Scotland will be the next thing to the fore.

Not too surprising that the Cyber GNats are all off air at the moment, an absolute butt******* with the added bonus the Wee Eck finally got his marching orders.

It seems that this thread can now be put to rest, since it no longer has any useful purpose.

What a night , another fantastic night for the SNP with their 2nd best westminster election results in their entire history, more seats in Scotland than the entire oposition combined and yet again the largest party in Scotland. This combined with the utter humiliation of the Tories nationally

Well done the people of Scotland for putting their trust in the only party in Scotland who solely repersents the interests of the people of Scotland

I guess that's irony, isn't it?

Maybe not, given that it looks like even Nicola Sturgeon is admitting that raising the issue of another Scottish Independence referendum contributed to the 47.5% loss of SNP seats, the biggest increase in Scottish Conservative seats seen for a few decades, and an increase in both Labour and LibDem seats.

Mind you, only someone as thick skinned and illogical as Nicola Sturgeon could call for Theresa May to resign, when the Conservatives only lost about 4% of their seats, yet not mention that there was no need for the leader of the SNP at Westminster to resign, because he'd lost his seat to a Conservative..............
