Thoughts on the SNP Conference

by craig on Mar 30th 2015 in Uncategorized

I am campaigning for the SNP in this general election.

Upset and depressed after being barred from the SNP candidates’ register by the hierarchy for “lack of commitment to group discipline”.

I thought I might give a quick round up of views on some of the stuff that happened while I was off the web. These might each have got a full article had I been able. But for those who have been missing some eclecticism: Brown dithers over general election. I really don’t care. Four […]
