You would have thought that the best way for Theresa May to demonstrate that she represents "strong, stable leadership in the national interest", would have been to turn up and take part in the ITV debate, rather than having someone tweet through it.
It is nothing short of hypocritical to talk about "Sturgeon's plan to leave the UK - Scotland's biggest market" causing economic chaos. Are Team Theresa really saying that they expect the EU to trade freely with the UK, post Brexit, but that the rest of the UK would not trade freely with an independent Scotland?
As for Brexit being the "most crucial challenge facing Britain today", Theresa May is not even up to the challenge of the televised debates, let alone getting the "best deal".
There can be no doubt about it, Jeremy Corbyn, his colleagues, and their policies, have, and continue to be, subjected to far greater scrutiny than Team Theresa. We, in Scotland, are of course, quite used to this sort of thing, with SNP MSP's, MP's, councillors, candidates, and ordinary members, being held to a far higher standard than the rest. But it is not only the majority of the mainstream media who are unforgiving where Corbyn is concerned. There are also his political opponents, including those within the Labour Party.
Imagine my surprise, on reading that Kezia Dugdale intends to continue at the helm of Scottish Labour, regardless of the outcome on June 8th, given that last August, she backed Owen Smith to replace Jeremy Corbyn as leader, despite the latter having been in the job less than a year, and never having contested a general election.
It could be that Ms Dugdale has had a change of heart, and that she will be behind Mr Corbyn 100 per cent, should he decide to carry on as Labour leader, even in the event of a Tory landslide next month. Then again, perhaps she simply holds Mr Corbyn to a higher standard than that which she expects from everyone else, and indeed herself.
I stumbled across the survey referred to in the email below on a pro-independence group on social media.
I'd very much like to know what percentage of respondents, like me, stated that they were in favour of independence. Sending a message, making clear our support for independence to the Lib-Dem leadership, was, I suspect, the very reason many of us completed the in the first place. Why the omission, I wonder?
