I’m not giving that mouth-to-mouth!
As the two candidates for Chief Dragon arrived in Scotland to tell us, creepily, that they will never let us go, New Labour Sarah said, last night:
‘The Tories in Scotland have enjoyed something of a resurgence in recent years. They need a new leader who won’t do anything to reverse those gains. Their top priority ins a leader who won’t increase support for Scottish independence.’
So, Sarah, this resurgence? In recent years?
The complete wipe-out and third-place in the EU elections?
The SNP came in a clear first with 37.7% of the vote followed by the Brexit Party with 14.8%. Next was the Lib Dems with 13.8%, after that the Conservatives with 11.6%. Labour recorded 9.3% of the vote and the Scottish Greens came in with 8%.
