I belatedly watched the #scotdebates on STV tonight…..and my conclusion and summary of it are as follows: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
I was getting so bored I was dozing off.
What I did manage to glean out of it was this:
Willie Rennie: was as usual totally unconvincing, but that is the state LibDems have been for a long while now…They are just not at all convincing, and It is hard to believe them on anything.
Ruth Davidson: Typical Tory fest, with the added news that they would benefit the Rich, with Tax cuts, while Indirectly taxing everyone else to pay for it. Graduate tuition fees of £6,000 and £8 prescription charge
Kezia Dugdale: still doesn’t understand Labours own tax policy, but Labour would make everyone Including pensioners pay more tax, but unlike the Lib Dems who also want to raise tax, Labour can’t decide all that they want to spend it on.
That plus having a rammy fest every time Nicola Sturgeon spoke….She is good at shouting loudly and Interrupting for no good purpose, other than to stop people hearing what Nicola has to say.
Nicola Sturgeon: a reasonable performance, but no more than that, no more than that was required. she basically highlighted that the SNP would continue with it’s softly softly cautious approach. Though she did confirm that Indy2 would be spoken about in the manifesto.
Patrick Harvey: The usual common sense approach from him, although the Greens too would be wanting to raise tax levels much higher than the others, but focusing on the high earners, and reducing low earner tax
On Indy2…the usual suspects came out with their once in a generation/lifetime referendum. However Nicola pointed out that it would only occur if there was a sustained will of the Scottish people for it.
Kezia said Labour would still vote NO, and she didn’t regret them being the Tory bedfellows in it. She further more stated that Labour would still vote against, even if there was a settled will of the Scottish people proven to want it. In effect honestly confirming that Labour put their own interests first and to hell with what the people think.
That’s all I can be bothered with… Goodnight ZZZZZZZZZZ
