New Alex Salmond Party

I don’t especially like being called a nationalist simply because I want independence, but there’s a certain group of folk who don’t want independence that really really hate being called unionists. Oddly those same folk are totally fine calling me a nationalist or a Nat if they’re feeling rather perky.
I don't think most supporters of Scottish independence fit the dictionary definition of nationalism at all:

"a person who strongly identifies with their own nation and vigorously supports its interests, especially to the exclusion or detriment of the interests of other nations"

To me that's a clearer description of the UK government than the Scottish government. The outcome of the EU referendum also indicates that England is more nationalist than Scotland in my view.

Nationalist as a term does tend to be used by the likes of Boris Johnson and certain posters in ad hominem attacks. It plays well in support of their positions I suppose.

Exactly ours is a civic nationalism as opposed to English/British nationalism which is about barriers and closing in on itself with nostalgia for days of empire and supremacy.

Am I right in thinking that Salmond is a confirmed sex pest, albeit one who didn't cross the criminal law threshold? I'll certainly not be voting for him.

He makes my skin crawl. I won't be voting for him either, and is McAskill, Cherry and others wish to join him, they lose my support too.

An Indy option on the list that isn’t green and can win seats.

what’s not to like.

Him?

A message to you, radge
Why would anyone vote for Mr Sleepy Cuddle,wandering hands, sleazy sex pest?

In terms of his ego having to be in the limelight, he is becoming a Scottish Farage.

I have no idea who will benefit the most from this re the election, but it will just add to Indy / Union being the only talking point.

It is however really funny calling labour voting fans of the tribute act unionists

I'm seeing a lot of people saying they're not/they wouldn't vote for Alex Salmond. Unless you live in the region he's on the list for you're not able to.

I agree that he's unlikeable but he (and now also the Alba party) have more hunger for independence than the current SNP leadership will ever have. If it means that we can get rid of some of those career list unionist politicians whilst also holding the SNP's feet to the fire on independence they will do for me.

I have read many times, including on the Bounce that voting SNP for many is a means to an end towards independence or of 'holding their noses' whilst voting SNP.

Does the same reasoning not apply to the Alba party?

Hes standing in the north east so I’m not voting for him.

Ill be voting for local Indy guy Chris McAleny - who was 4th on the snp list and hopefully Colette Walker if the ISP throw their lot in with Alba today.

both good Indy focussed people.

if I vote snp I’ll get Tory and Labour list msps or perhaps a green - Ross Greer - but he’s projected to lose his seat anyway.

mot I could vote Alba and hopefully get an Indy Msp.

it would be a dilemma if it was Salmond I was voting for, but I’m not.

pretty sure he is a hibby, maybe not a regular match goer, but i doubt blackford gets to too many games either.
