Angus Robertson Continuing SNP’s Delusions

Scottish Cabinet Secretary Angus Robertson is continuing the trend of SNP ministers kidding themselves into believing things that just aren’t true. Yesterday, he insisted “support for Scottish independence is continuing to grow”, yet offered no evidence to back that claim – probably because that evidence doesn’t actually exist. Aggregate polling shows that support for independence has been in decline for the last 12 months…

Guido’s flicked through the code, and it doesn’t look like ‘self-delusion’ is another one of those principles. Of course, the code was issued by Nicola Sturgeon, so there’s probably room to be flexible…
