So tonight I've noticed an interesting pattern relating to #BothVotesSNP that's worth flagging.

I've spotted several, apparently fake pro-SNP accounts, all based outside of Scotland, all using weird language. Buckle up...

Thread 👇
Here's 'Noah' in London. 'Noah' advocating a 'savior [sic] leader'? Really? Doesn't that language seem odd to any reasonable person?
But wait, there's more: here's Monica, a London based socialist advocating for #BothVotesSNP

"make your destiny" - Really?

#AlbaParty @theSNP email thing blowing up a bit so apologies if I don’t respond to all. It’s slightly off-topic but folk have been discussing the #BothVotesSNP strategy off the back of this, so in the meantime, here’s a summary of my presentation on that from Thursday (1of7)

Someone in my #SNP branch has just sent me this data on the #ListVote results before the new equality mechanism was applied. They told me the #leak comes from a staffer in SNP HQ, I have no reason to doubt them and it does looks like you'd expect it to.

Just typical Nippy Krankie bluster & BS for her gullible domestic audience.
Without #IndyRef2 enabling legislation passed by the Westminster UK Parliament, it would just be an opinion poll, & could legally be ignored.

As @Effiedeans so lucidly explains here, the latest 'road map to independence' put forward by Sturgeon & the SNP is neither a road, nor a map.

UK Constitution expert: #SNP plan for #IndyRef2 without UK consent 'deluded and pointless'.
Unilateral vote would be vulnerable to court challenge to its legitimacy, and its result could be ignored, anyway.

The Scottish National Party’s record in government is a litany of failures. Yet it continues to ride high on back of nationalist sentiment as it focuses exclusively on ideology and not competence.

My piece in @ForeignPolicy

foreignpolicy.com/2020/11/02/vot….

Short thread 1/12
With Scottish Parliament elections next year, the #SNP will focus exclusively on separating Scotland from the UK and strive to keep all emphasis off its repeated scandals and poor record.

EG from this year... 2/12
1. COVID. Earlier this yr, SNP decided to free up hospital beds by discharging 3599 elderly patients after testing only 650. Even though 78 tested +ve, ALL were sent to care homes. Resulting in over 2000 deaths - half of all deaths in Scotland. 3/12

@MhairiHunter Why not? Where to begin!

For a start every SNP politician, every opening of parliaments, wears a white rose to honour their founding faither Hugh MacDiarmid, author of 'plea for a Scottish Fascism'
@MhairiHunter Then there are the cover-ups about the EU. The party is, and has done, everything it can to keep the truth from Scots about if, how and when we could meet the Copenhagen Criteria.
@MhairiHunter Then there's the poor quality of SNP politician we get. Derek MacKay, Margaret Ferrier, Michelle Thompson, Natalie McGarry, Mark McDonald...

@CPL is going to start in a few hours, the excitement among cricket fans to watch T20 cricket after a longtime will be sky high & I feel CPL won't disappoint us much!!!

Almost all teams are very much balanced (feel sorry for Zouks)

Team Analysis in d thread below

#CPL #CPL2020
Barbados 🇧🇧 Tridents

Let me start with the defending Champions @BIMTridents

Team is filled with young players and I feel their strong suite is their Bowling !!

Batting looks slightly weak compared to the bwlng department

#CPL #CPL2020 #BarbadosTridents #Barbados
Barbados had their Core local team retained!!

They have an experienced Captain in Holder who should hold the key for them down d order

JohnsonCharles will open alongside Kyle Mayers

They have @shaidhopein the middle to hold the inngs

Please, can someone at @theSNP HQ get Kenny MacAskill to spare half an hour to sit down and have a look at an actual spreadsheet showing exactly what will happen to SNP vote & seats if supporters follow his advice and vote for a fringe indy list party?

scotsman.com/news/opinion/c…
"Senior SNP figures failing to recognise benefits of second indy party standing for regional seats, writes Kenny MacAskill"

Maybe like anyone sensible examining issue, they actually did some data analysis confirming to any who look at numbers there are no 'benefits', only risks.
If I was an #SNP list candidate (especially in the South of Scotland, where the last seat looks like being a toss up between Tories and SNP), I'd be spitting blood at this dreadful advice from a party colleague, that would likely cost me my seat.

Could we about to see a change in position from the SNP? Looks like @AlynSmith has deleted his website saying iScot must be at the heart of EU, and that argued against EFTA etc. Alternatives
The scotlandineurope.eu website had already been criticised for not even *mentioning* the Copenhagen Criteria
If they are feeling pressured, or the information commissioner is shortly about to rule, that they must release the #CopenhagenReport , showing we would be outside the EU for 15 to 20 years then they may be purging previous positions insisting an iScot would be in the EU

'Tactical voting' in the Scottish Parliament election. #SNP #Greens #Holyrood #TacticalVoting #AMS #DHondt

medium.com/@listvotesense…
“The brutal but honest truth: anyone who still persists in their beliefs about ‘tactical voting’, in the face of all the algorithmic evidence to the contrary, is as impervious to the facts as any Brexiter or anti-vaxxer.” #TacticalVoting #DHondt #AMS #Indyref2 #Yes2
"The single most important aspect of the discussion witnessed over the last week, is that it has once again highlighted just how widespread is the failure to understand the practical operation of the Additional Member allocation process”

We are excited to share our pub in #EvolutionaryApplications bit.ly/2GH3tzr comparing relatedness estimates for pairing recommendations in critically #endangered #birds from #Aotearoa #NZ 🇳🇿. See this #SciComm 🧵 for more! #Conservation #Genomics #ConGen #ConSERTeam 1/13
Around the 🌏, #conservation breeding programmes strategically pair the least related individuals to enhance recovery. This is like #Tinder for threatened species, only more information goes into pairing than swiping ⬅️ or ➡️. See my #3MT for more! 2/13

It’s important to get the relatedness value right for pairing, because mating between close relatives can result in negative fitness consequences, like ⬇️ hatching success 🐣(see bit.ly/3b4IILO). 3/13

#london RT to restart campaign to leave the UK.

Remember #Scotlond? Maybe it's just my Scottish heritage, but it feels like we share more with #SNP than we do with the (average*) of the rest of the UK.
*I'm sorry English #Remainers, I know you're stuck with them, empathy.
London and Scotland are #taxationwithoutrepresentation, dragged from EU against our will. We are the new #BostonTeaParty and the #NewEnglishEmpire is just as arrogant today as the old one was 246 years ago on 16th December.

Time WE took back control.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_Te…
Despite what tory offshore owned tabloids say, London has some of the most deprived areas in the UK. It shares a long history of financial services and entrepreneurship with Scotland and similar politics
And best of all - together we are 20% of the UK, but 30% of tax revenues

A last chance.
Latest Poll.
Progressives 54%
Regressives 46%

You've won folks!
And yet lost.

Few options are left but there is still one. It's not inconsistent for anyone snd it unites.

Press Weds?

Care Diem⏬
So many people want to see friends come together.

And you've tried.

@joswinson 2nd ref statements yesterday has much more appeal than #revoke.

@NicolaSturgeon reasonable moderated language on #IndyRef2 helps

Now @jeremycorbyn it's your turn

Cynical? In denial? Could we have predicted this?
We tried.

Just days away from a #GE2019 which will shape UK for many generations to come!

Some incontrovertible facts:

1/ UK GDP% growth has stalled, at just 0.1% over the 6 months to 30sep19 (so, virtually flat-lining). This is the worst 1/2 year performance since the financial crash.
2/ Three plus years on from the disastrous #EURef, we now KNOW that destabilising Russian influence/cash was a material factor in driving the #Leave Vote. So, #RussiaReport MUST be released BEFORE we vote again in #GE2019.
3/ Russian agents also freely KILL (when directed & funded to do so) on the streets of Britain, so let's not readily 'pooh pooh' their ambition & reach to destabilise both the #UK & #EU.

#GE2019 #GeneralElection2019

Are you still #undecided?
Are you thinking of voting #LibDem? Think very hard: your vote may get you a very bad #Brexit.
You want to #Remain & that's why you're voting #LibDem?
But the #LibDems can't #RevokeArticle50 unless they win the election. In 2017 they won 12 seats. They need 326 MPs to win. How many do they need to claim a mandate to #Revoke?
Maybe the #LibDems can form a minority government?
Could a minority government #RevokeArticle50? Even for that the #LibDems would need at least 200 seats. And what other parties would they then need for success? The #SNP might vote to #RevokeArticle50, but would they be enough?

Let's look at #Labour's winning post at #GE2019. It's nearly in touching distance. /THREAD
Is it at 220 #Labour MPs - the moment at which there might well be 320 anti-Con MPs in Parliament? Maybe not. They'd have gone backwards quite a way. Johnson would hang on and use the FTPA against them to stall.
Is it at about 235 Labour MPs, at which point Lab + SNP + PC + SDLP + Green might just equal the number of Con MPs? Maybe not, cos LDs very ambivalent and DUP won't ever, ever even tacitly assist Jez into No. 10.
