Scottish Politics Thread

Someone in Scottish government got their tounge bit when they did that knee jerk reaction. It's luck they didn't have the same scruples when they went cap in hand to the Chinese.

The big question, will Wee Ruth claim her baby box?
 
The big question, will Wee Ruth claim her baby box?
Reportedly, the bairn was over 10lbs. It will need a reinforced baby box.
First LGBT leader of a UK political party? (Scottish Conservatives)
First leader of a UK political party to get married at a civil marriage ceremony.
First political leader to give birth while serving serving as leader of a UK political party?
As she's the first, she has set the record for the heaviest baby born to a serving leader of a UK political party.
Can she oust the SNP?

Because the main battle for votes in Scotland is still SNP and Labour, both vying for the voter who has socialist leanings, i.e. wants something for nothing and is happy for following generations to pay for it all through borrowing heavily. The Conservatives are still hankering after the voter of old who believes that frugality, spending wisely and earning their way through life is the best way for prosperity for Scotland and the generations to follow. The Greens etc are and always will target niche voters and at best will use whatever power they get to prop up whoever needs it as long as they get some of their policies into practice.

Teachers marched through Glasgow yesterday demanding a 10% pay rise.

They are rejecting Swinney's offer of "Through a combination of a 3% increase for all staff earning up to £80,000, restructuring the main grade scale and annual progression, the majority of teachers receive a rise between 5% and 11%. "
 
Throw in voter fatigue with a party offering more politicking advers publicity from the Bute house Saga I think the predicted Result is highly Likely
 
There are some targets that might fall when hit:

the pretendy chancellor in Holyrood calling 45k earners ‘among the richest in society ’ and skimming more from them in taxes than ‘those bastard Tories’.

Salmond getting his fat arse handed to him by a judge. I’m praying.

SC&U MSP in a spot of bother over a leaked report.
MSP faces Holyrood ban over report leak

"A complaint was made that the Tory MSP had "sought political advantage" by speaking out about prisoner voting before a report had been published."

His Eckiness has brought an action against the Scottish Government. It will be heard in the Court of Session where Judges rule.

Sheriffs are further down the judicial food chain.
