On the UK General Election, I'm up in Scotland and a snap general election should be interesting. The SNP will almost probably lose some seats, if purely on the fact that they have 53 of the 56 available in Scotland, but it is hard to see Labour or the Lib Dems making any significant gains, and Green are too small get any gains in the FPTP system.
If I had to guess, I think the SNP will hold on to most of their seats, but the Tories could get a few southern ones. The Scottish Tories have been very cany in making themselves the pro-unionist party in Scotland, whereas Labour has suffered badly by being too wishy washy on their stance on the union, combined with the very inadequate leader of Dugdale, and headlines of Scottish Labour being ignored by British Labour, I think in Scotland, it is going to boil down to the SNP vs Conservative.
I also think this will help gauge how much of an appetite there may be for a 2nd indepence referendum, but the SNP may get alot of voters who would rather priortise the EU over the union.
