Why am I voting SNP for the first time in my life?


I will be voting for The SNP for the first time in my life. There are many reasons for this. Many of those who are closest to me politically will be supporting other candidates to the SNP’s left. I want to explain why I think this is a serious tactical mistake.
What the British Establishment is doing should give all parties to the left of Nicola Sturgeon’s 100,000 members pause for thought.
Jim Murphy hopes socialists in Scotland split the vote in a way that protects the criminals behind the Frenchgate conspiracy.
Jim Murphy wants to destroy all MPs who are more than lapdogs for GCHQ, NSA, MI5, MI6, Special Branch. That is why Ed Miliband is okay from his point of view as both choices for 10 Downing Street have contempt for civil liberties of those trashed by MI5 and Special Branch, such as Diane Abbott MP and Doreen Lawrence.
First-past-the-post means that voting for who we most want can have catastrophic consequences. 50 or more SNP MPs can become the backbone of a movement that introduces proportional representation across the UK. Are members of TUSC (Trade Union and Socialist Coalition) indifferent to that? Why? Dave Nellist needs the overthrow of this wretched lottery of ‘democracy’ that is so patently corrupted by every last one of the broadcast networks of the British Establishment. TUSC needs help to end this electoral monstrosity even more than Natalie Bennett and Patrick Harvie do.
I would appeal to my comrades in TUSC – even at this very late stage – to consider withdrawing from this first-past-the-post lottery. Do it in order to boost our support for securing representation to Holyrood on the regional lists in one year’s time. At the very least, please think about it.
