Has the SNP Bubble Burst?

With two MSPs resigning the whip, and Big Eck accused of barefaced lying, and having to rush to the chamber, is it all beginning to unravel for the SNP?

If he loses one more he is no longer guaranteed an overall majority.

I think that the use of a terminological inexactitude, when discussing Scotland's Membership of the EEC, could turn out to be a milestone.

wee eddie - 'it' could turn out to be a millstone as well...but not heavy enough a millstone, I think, so as to asway the people who want to vote for independence in two years time.

"not heavy enough a millstone, I think, so as to asway the people who want to vote for independence in two years time."

It's certainly begun to sway me.

It remains to be seen if my oscillations increase or decrease!

There's no doubt that the complexities of independence are many and the associated costs for both parties if it occurs will be huge, both financially and politically.

Yet the outcome will be decided by a small minority of the UK population, many still at school.

that a lying politician should lose his job.

So that includes Andrew Mitchell.

"So that includes Andrew Mitchell."

If proven to be a liar, yes. As far as I'm aware that hasn't happened.

Carrying a millstone for a mile would be quite a feet, or feat, as one mite right, write.

wee eddie - it was much easier to 'play around' with 'milestone' rather than getting involved with 'terminological inexactitude' ;o)

If the FE thinks I "wriggle", then he should watch the proceedings from Holyrood on BBC Scotland!

That is a masterclass in wriggling!

Up until a few weeks ago I regularly watched the Scottish Parliament debates on Freeview and I wouldn't exactly support your views on wriggling, despite that being a wide definition.

What I have seen is good debate well controlled by a lady speaker and very little shouting and bawling like in the HoC. I think a lot could be learned by our politicians from watching a civilised chamber at work.
