Re: 2015 UK General Election

The Westminster establishment have just realised their massive gaffe of last summer, my heart bleeds :laughter: I wouldn't be so cocky. ISTM that the likely trajectory is for the SNP's ability to influence the UK government will be severely curtailed, if, as seems increasingly likely, SNP votes wil...

Sadly, I think the real problem for English socialists is that there isn't really a socialist party. Labour moved well away from that position from Blair onwards.

Re: 2015 UK General Election

can any of the TH Scots contingent give their view on why the SNP's support has rocketed so much since the (from the SNP's POV) failure to win the independence referendum? Presumably a lot of people who now support the SNP did not vote for independence last September Yup, Animist, I'll give it a go...

Re: 2015 UK General Election

I tend to forget that the Assembly uses PR - at least according to Wiki, the regional vote is by closed list PR but the constituency vote is FPTP. How does this work in practice? Well it's better than just FPTP, and we still have local representation. Interestingly the political parties expected us...

Re: 2015 UK General Election

...unless one enters some sort of arrangement with other voters, or the election contest really is down to the knuckle, I am a bit dubious about tactical voting. Hmmm, I agree tactical voting is not ideal, but it's a direct consequence of the FPTP system. I had such hopes last election that the Lib...

The Greens come closest to this ideal, and I also agree w...

I think it's because the petition is from Save the Children.
