Another Referendum to be held next year.

The Westminster General Election is in under a .years time
Although I am not a member of the SNP, can I suggest that every single YES supporter votes for them, and no other Independence supporting party stands.
In effect,lend them your vote. The others can ensure their distinctive voices are heard if the SNP stand in the election under the banner SNP(YES ALLIANCE)

The result of such action would ensure the SNP are elected to every seat, and in the process this would create a constitutional crisis
If the SNP stand on an Independence only ticket, then in effect this would mean turning the General Election into another referendum!
This time, New Lab, Tories and Lib Dems could not forge their false alliance as they would be fighting each other for the only thing that matters to them, power in Westminster…

Meanwhile, if we can get the 45 established as a genuine political movement, encompassing all the YES groups, Radical Independence etc, with their experience and organisation….The SNP for this one off election would have the biggest canvassing operation in British history.

This aint over by a long chalk… YES for Scotlands peaceful peoples revolution¬† as we take control.

About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod

    We will have a party, after all! Going to join the SNP.

  2. tartanpigsy says:

    Even better would be the creation of the Yes Alliance giving the Greens and Socialists some seats to fight and maintaining our recent unity for the election.

    • No, I disagree… order for it to be a clean sweep, it has to be SNP for this one election…..However there is nothing to prevent it being labeled SNP (YES Alliance)
      For other Indy parties to stand officially, it would be counter productive by splitting the Indy vote.

  3. Aye Rod sounding good I’m still mopping full of misery,I too have asked folk to vote SNP at every election,council,Westminster and Holyrood using both votes,might shift some sneers and jeers.I’m already an SNP member and have been for a few years now,and hope to last another few years.Up the Republic.

    • Holebender says:

      It would be much more efficient for the Holyrood election if everyone voted SNP in the constituency vote and another pro-indy party in the regional vote. The largest number of regional (list) seats will be awarded to parties with a high vote but no constituency MSPs. That’s just how the system works, and we should exploit it.

  4. BrianJM says:

    Leading up to the election, I can visualise no increased powers as ‘promised’. Maybe a few insignificant changes to appease the gullible.
    Then the parties will start ‘promising’ lot’s of goodies in an effort to win votes.
    Interesting times ahead.

  5. JimnArlene says:

    My thinking exactly.

  6. Bugger (the Panda) says:

    I joined the SNP too

  7. Brian says:

    I ain’t joining any political party,but for all future elections, I will lend the SNP my vote,the SNP(Yes Alliance) is smart politics ,make it as inclusive as poss,sweep the Lablibtory away.

    • I am not joining a political party either….but its the votes that count…. I hope others will join me in putting pressure on all of them to come together and do this….It is beyond party politics….

  8. Brian Fleming says:

    I like the idea. But, given it’s for a first-past-the-post election, I cannot see how an alliance allowing candidates from the SSP and the Greens to stand in certain seats (instead of SNP candidates) under the banner of a YES Alliance would split the vote. I’m a member of the SNP and would personally like an SNP clean sweep, but I wouldn’t dismiss the formal alliance idea out of hand by any means.

    • Why the SNP? For one simple reason….people are far more likely to vote for them in numbers…They are far bigger than the others…
      It keeps things simpler and nobody gets confused…
      Such an alliance needs to form behind one party..
      This is for one election only…Westminster.
      there is not a dogs chance in hell of the other partys to gain enough votes for to win the seat in first past the post…

  9. Brian Fleming says:

    And what about Solidarity? Tommy Sheridan would be a real asset electorally in Glasgow.

  10. antmcg says:

    @Brian Fleming
    Tommy Sheridan on his blog has suggested exactly this idea, of everyone voting for the SNP for this election…

  11. Will McEwan says:

    The people are already speaking. As I write this 17,000 people plus have joined the SNP since last week

  12. Fordie says:

    Are the Yes votes sufficient to win all the seats?

    • YES…..In all previous General Elections, the SNP either came 1st or 2nd in all seats…
      If Greens, Solidarity,SSP and Labour for Indy all joined in voting SNP in all seats for a one off General Election and didn’t put anyone up against them…..then it would be a landslide in Westminster..
      But in order for that to happen, they need to get their collective heads together and come to agreement….SNP(YES ALLIANCE] would skate it!

  13. Auld Rock says:

    I like the idea of SNP(YES ALLIANCE) as this would bring two mighty forces together once again. The fantastic mobilization by the Grass Roots ‘YES’ campaign backed-up by one, if not the finest campaign organisation in the country run by the SNP. Let’s keep talking and the ideas coming for I’m sure there will be some very robust debates at the SNP, National Conference in November.

    Hi how do we know all the party’s are going to allow that…. I’m a yes supporter and an snp member

    • We don’t…that’s why pressure must be applied on all Indy leaning political leaders to immediately begin talks.
      Time to put people above party….It is essential.

    • Holebender says:

      There needs to be a pact between the pro-indy parties. The quid pro quo would be the SNP agreeing not to fight for list seats in 2016. SNP only for constituencies and smaller parties only for regional list seats. That’s how we maximise the pro-indy vote in 2016.

  15. caperash says:

    Good idea, however I think the smaller parties should first confer and then negotiate a quid pro quo from the SNP along the lines of: if elected, you promise to enact Proportional Representation in the Scottish Parliament so that in future we can fight you in these elections, and possibly win more seats, but then on national issues like Independence, our members can join you in such votes or movements even though we do have disagreements on the shape an independent Scotland should take (currency union or not, oil privatized or not, EU or not etc.).

  16. Brian hay says:

    If Scotland votes 59 mp’s from the snp into Westminster , any truth in the claim we can demand independence at that outcome? If not a total snp government in 2016 would that give us independence ?
