    Yousaf's first Cabinet is a massive own goal. Where's the talent ? By shutting out all of those who had backed Kate Forbes ( who won 48% of the leadership vote) he has managed to split the SNP beyond recovery. 
    His debut as First Minister at FMQs today was cringeworthy. Utterly f**king hopeless. Nothing but pre-prepared, rehearsed answers unrelated to the questions he was asked by the opposition. Clearly incapable of offering a valid, pertinent response to probing questions. A Sturgeon puppet with no believable ideas of his own. Douglas Ross, a Grade 1 fud, beat him hands down.
    Stating the bleeding obvious alert - this guy is not fit for purpose !!!
    With a potential by-election looming at Rutherglen, ok maybe not until August, the SNP can expect a right royal shafting from Labour. The writing is on the wall, the tables are turning in Scotland. This saddens me (being pro-independence), but Yousaf's leadership of the SNP and his term as FM must be short lived.
    Get him to f**k.
    Soon.

    Up till only a few years ago I would have echoed this sentiment exactly. Alas, since the SNP Scottish government became beholden to the  Scottish Greens they have lost my support. I'm certain many other long-term SNP supporters will feel the same.
     
    Slarti, you have highlighted an excellent point that many SNP-haters don't grasp.
    It is a common misconception by some that an independent Scotland would automatically mean that the SNP would govern forever more. As you rightly point out, there would still be other parties to chose from coming from a wide spectrum of political views. In fact, post-independence, why would the SNP continue to exist at all. It would be 'mission accomplished', no longer a need to campaign for independence, no need to continue. Using Brexit as a parallel example, what has become of UKIP since 2016 ?

    On the first point you make. I hope you continue to cast your vote for the SNP in UK elections as that vote is indicative of the opinion for self governance as opposed to the SNP running the newly, independent Scotland, as your well put second point explains.
    ETA. I have had to explain to some, if you want rid of the SNP, then vote SNP.

    Now now, FS, are you being difficult ?
    I think we both understand that Guinness's post is referring to SNP's alliance with the Greens being "vote-losing" for the SNP.
    Today's appointment is (IMO) a suicide note signed by about a third of the SNP membership (26k of the eligible 72k had him as first choice). The Scottish public have made it clear in recent opinion polls that the 'continuity candidate' was not their preferred person to lead the Scottish Parliament and, sure as eggs is eggs, support for the SNP will continue to ebb away.

    The Greens now hold the balance of power. The tail has been wagging the dog throughout this parliament. If SNP voters had wanted Green policies to become law they would have voted for the Green candidate at the election. 
    But of course you already know this.
    SNP are a minority government because of the electoral system rules. They require the support of the Greens MSPs to create the majority that allows them to outvote Labour / Tories / Lib Dems at Holyrood. Consequently the people of Scotland are being greenwashed.
    But of course you already know this.
    Humza would not be the choice of the majority of Scottish voters. Opinion polls showed Kate Forbes was the public's preference.
    Yes, SNP are hopelessly out of touch. 
    We all know this.

    Independence  disappears for the foreseeable future. Continue with the vote losing Greens to keep all the weird nonsense going and bleed votes away.

    This was a match I felt we needed to win if we were aiming for a top-6 spot, so it's disappointing that we only drew. However, I suppose after our dire start today most of us would have settled for a point, which has just about kept our top-6 hopes alive. A few tough fixtures to come before the split, so the Livi and Killie games are now absolutely must-wins.
