Today Joanna Cherry announced that she will be coming to the legal defence of Marion Millar.
Today on Twitter @TheHubScot took a screenshot of a page on snp.org.
It is with great dismay when it was revealed Ms Cherry, the Edinburgh Western MP has resigned from NEC a few days after the resignation of other high profiled members including Mr Chapman. Mr Chapman resigned as NEC treasurer, citing “a lack of support and information as reasons behind his resignation. According to Chapman lack of information prevented him from carrying out his fiduciary duties, actions that hindered his desires to meet public commitments”.
The Sunday National this week posted an article with stats on list votes pitting pro-independence parties against unionist parties. Looking over the number of votes that all pro-indy list parties received (including Greens, SNP, Alba, and others) they lead by a majority of 61,889 votes with 1,372,993 going to independence supporting groups.
So the Scottish Parliament election has come to an end and the results are in. The SNP increased their vote share and did really well but didn’t manage a majority despite an increase in votes. This is because the current voting system in Scotland is designed to prevent a single party from being able to get an outright majority forcing parties to have to work with others. The 2011 SNP majority was a pure fluke that was never meant to happen and is unlikely to be repeated easily. Why is this? It’s because of the D’Hont system. There seems to be much confusion amongst voters in Scotland over how the D’Hont voting system works, some confuse it with STV while others have little understanding of the formula behind it or simply misinterpret it.
