Rumour is she's chucking it on health grounds. Hope she's got private healthcare.
Or it could be a snap GE
Think you might be right with the GE guess. You also need to stop following certain pish on Twitter
I just clicked the trend button thingy but you're right, I'll stick to my football gossip in future. That's never wrong
In terms of the vote in Scotland, the SNP are still about where they were in 2015 if you look at the polls (the last poll had them at 47% which is maybe slightly lower than the kind of polling numbers they were getting at the last election, but not much lower). The real difference is Labour are now a non-entity and the Tories are polling almost 30% so the country is going to end up with a Tory/SNP split.
Bizarre how much Scottish politics has changed in just a few years and pretty much underlines the point that a lot of politics is about the issues on the agenda rather than what politicians actually say/do - when everyone was thinking of the left vs the right, Labour were winning Scotland comfortably in general elections and Theresa May would have been viewed as some kind of Thatcher-esque folk devil, now we're thinking about independence/Brexit and the SNP and Tories are miles ahead.
The SNP is New Labour in plaid and the Tories remain ****s, as they always will.
I probably won't bother putting a cross in a box at all. I'm sick to **** of tactical voting since there's nothing on offer that meets my aspirations and the community's needs.
Another facking election, snooze.
I suppose it is a chance to give the annoying Mrs Krankie a good kicking.
The SNP will do much and such maybe even get rid of Mundell just under 800 to shift can be done and will be done.
Time will tell. But i expect a sting in the tail with the SNP .
Oh I really canna wait. It's like Christmas...
A majority of SNP MP's in Scotland = independence. Wrong.
SNP get over 50% popular vote in Scotland = independence. Wrong and wont happen anyway.
A cast iron second independence referendum in the manifesto. Wont work.
A pledge that all SNP MP's will always vote like lemmings and wont have one independent thought between them. No need, we know that already.
It has only been 2 years since the last GE. If the SNP lose any MP's it will be a complete disaster for them but happy days for the majority in Scotland.
I'm expecting a lot of anti SNP tactical voting, hopefully that will take some seats off them and wipe the grin off Mrs Krankie's ugly mug.
The SNP will run riot in the local elections that MAY keep you happy.
And the general election will be rather interesting gone are the days down in Westminster where we had Scottish elected MPs bowing to their London masters..
The SNP have came a long way since the days of less than 10 representing Scotland at Westminster the rise and the rise .
We aren't going to go back in the box we have a taste and march on we will.
Don't suppose you are going to the Independence march in Glasgow earlyJune it's going to be massive .
Be great to see you there

I see the GE is a done deal now after the vote in westminster.
Problem i have, is I really don't know what way to vote this time.
I was all in favour of independence in 2014, but the vote went the other way and I personally think we should stick to that for a generation.
Not impressed with the raise in council tax in Aberdeen, and the talk of increasing business rates, but is that all down to the SNP and the MSPs?
Would never vote Tory, no matter what. Labour is as big a joke as the Liberal Democrats, so if not the SNP, then the Greens?
Very indecisive i have to admit.....
