There are calls from Sillars and other elected officials telling Sturgeon to go over it, One party branch has lost over 14% of their membership over it. Many other SNP voters are also walking away.Do you see any other outcome?
Why would the SNP shit on its own doorstep? Without Sturgeon they will face a massive setback.
What ylunforget is there is a sizable Salmond support still in the SNP and Sillars has mentioned previously of splitting from SNP and forming a new party. Given the spat between the Sturgeon support and the likes of Cherry it could well happen.
The Internet is also awash with independence supporters who have lost faith with the SNP and Sturgeon claiming they don't really want it as they have their noses well and truly in the gravy train and she's an establishment plant/stooge.
Whatever May will be interesting and I don't think the walk over they are boasting about. If I was the Murrells after May I'd be drafting up a CV and getting in touch with the broo office if they lose seats.
