Very insightful words! Thank you.It feels that way at times but it has to be remembered that they only represent about a 1/3rd of the voting public.
Around 60% of the country is Unionist. They could be wiped out if everyone got on board with it.
What gets me is that they were purely a protest vote when Labour became so toxic that people in Scotland moved away from them. The Scottish Nationalists realised they could grab a section (ie the less than Staunch) of that support which was always anti-Union and their bile has been allowed to spread.
As much as Sturgeon continues to pretend she's speaking for Scotland, she really isn't. FPTP really suits them as things stand. The very thing they throw out when saying "Scotland doesn't get the Government they vote for" in relation to UK elections suits them down to the ground for getting seats here.
