Instead of focussing on local issues, all too predictably, the Unionist/British Nationalist parties are determined to turn the forthcoming local elections into a referendum on a second independence referendum. Here, as an example, Kezia Dugdale clearly states that which we already knew: her first priority is the Union.
How depressing that she can't even see the contradiction in her message. It really is high time Davidson, Dugdale, and Rennie, got back to the "day job", of dealing with the here and now, instead of obsessing over an independence referendum that is at least two years away. Perhaps yet another bloody nose at the ballot box will finally see them get "the message" that repeatedly putting Scotland second is electoral suicide.
