    My prime commitment is to independence, not to party. My commitment to SNP is strategic/tactical - they're best able to deliver #indyref2

  • Peter Curran@moridura

    Could #BothVotesSNP alienate non-SNP YES parties? Maybe. But if it did, it would signal a greater commitment to party than to independence.

  • Peter Curran@moridura

    The ENTIRE vote of YES supporters of ALL indy parties will be a giant tactical signal of Scotland's independence intent. Plurality can wait.

  •  

  • Peter Curran@moridura

    The resolve of the YES electorate can best be demonstrated by SNP, the party that got us #indtref1 holding every seat and even gaining some.

     

  • Peter Curran@moridura

    Don't think polls indicate every SNP Holyrood seat's safe, incl.constituency ones. THEY DON'T. One lost seat would be hailed as a UK victory

    Monday National: "..whether it's worth the risk for Yes voters to try to get other pro-indy parties elected." No - it's not #BothVotesSNP

      Before using #GuiltByAssociation arguments, look hard at the kind of people who have used them, e.g. http://www.pfaw.org/rww-in-focus/rise-of-the-new-mccarthyism-how-right-wing-extremists-try-to-paralyze-government-throug …

    Misuse of "begs the question" in #SundayHerald. It doesn't mean "demands that question be asked" but "assert a proposition without evidence"

  • Peter Curran@moridura in Iraq and Syria and refugee crisis UK created, with EU bearing the brunt.

    What does YES Brexit argument say? It says "Let's help Unionist rUK take us out of EU and into dangerous waters with UK's hand on the tiller

  • Peter Curran@moridura

    R.I.P. Terry Wogan. All my memories of him are happy ones - of a great, natural broadcaster and a fundamentally decent human being.

  • Peter Curran@moridura

    Beware of unionists telling us that BREXIT under UK will give us more independence. If you believe that, pour some cauld watter on yer heid!

  • Peter Curran@moridura

    The argument that EU membership is incompatible with Scotland's independence confuses independence with inter-dependence - and it's unionist

  • Peter Curran@moridura

    #EUreferendum I believe BREXIT's bad for Europe, UK and Scotland. Some YES supporters disagree. I respect the view but, please - AFTER indy!

  • Peter Curran@moridura

    A YES supporter, voting OUT in #EUReferendum lines up with the worst elements in UK politics - damages indy. EU is a decision for AFTER indy

  • Peter Curran@moridura I respect your view. But if you vote OUT before indy you'll damage independence

    Let's be sure that in the May election, Scottish voters understand the system and use it well. Let's make sure that YES voters use it best!

    #BothVotesSNP When you cast your #PreferenceVote (2nd vote) on May 5th, you pick the #party, not the person - the party picks the #candidate

    Each registered political party standing in the regional ballot submits a list of their candidates in order of #Party’s #Preference.

    Don't be fooled by UK media crap about #Scotland as #OnePartyState. UK has always been a one party state - The WM Party Against the People.

  • Peter Curran@moridura

    You may support YES, may be SNP or another YES party. But UNTIL independence, only #BothVotesSNP sends stark #indyref2 intent message to UK.

  • Peter Curran@moridura 

    The d'Hondt system of voting is designed to proportionally reflect the voting choices of Scots in the Parliament. YOUR choice? #BothVotesSNP

    ScottishParliament has 73 constituencies: candidates elected on first-past-the-post. 56 regional/list members elected by your 2nd vote. #SNP

  • Peter Curran@moridura

    Want to write to your MSP? Why not write to all eight of them? You have one constituency MSP and seven regional MSPs. They're all YOURS!

  • Peter Curran@moridura

    You have one constituency MSP but you also have SEVEN regional MSPs. The seven are elected based on your preference votes. #BothVotesSNP
