Replying to @cuthyb @theSNP
Personally I'm an independent, but I think this is interesting for its implications for the timing of the next referendum, and for the 'SNP1&2' strategy that, let's face it, nearly lost the pro-indy majority last time.

Law of averages. If you select a truly random sample it's plenty, statistically speaking. 100 is enough. The problem is getting it to be truly random.

Well no, of course not. And they are usually, "If the election was tomorrow..." It's interesting in terms of the timing of the referendum, and in its implications for the 'SNP1&2' strategy that, let's face it, almost lost the pro-indy majority in 2016.

It'll turn. This is a bit of a lull, the calm before the storm.

Food for thought, for a number of reasons - Poll suggests Holyrood pro-indy majority will be lost

1. Such a sad morning in Glasgow. So relieved that there has been no loss of life. And so full of admiration and gratitude for . But it is hard to find words to convey the utter devastation felt here and around the world for the iconic Mackintosh building

I have changed my twitter handle, it's still me but I've dropped the 'DSM' (because that handle recently became available). I've also changed my display name from Derek S. to Derek Stewart Macpherson.

Seems she saw my profile pic and thought it would just fit right there, similar hat, so she asked if I'd mind if she had a play with it. I said go for your life, and I was very pleased with the result.

Do you like my new cover pic? A friend took my pic, same one the caricature is from, flipped it to a mirror image and photoshopped it into 'The Night Watch,' which is a Rembrandt. 😀
