THE ALBA CHALLENGE…WATCH LIVE!

SALMOND TO UNVEIL NEW “DECLARATION FOR SCOTLAND” AT CAMPAIGN LAUNCH
A SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT WITH A SUPERMAJORITY MUST BEGIN INDEPENDENCE NEGOTIATIONS ON WEEK ONE


ALBA Party Leader and Former First Minister Alex Salmond will today (Tuesday) launch the ALBA national campaign for the Scottish Parliament Elections on Thursday  6 May. Mr Salmond will set out the “Route to Independence” on the Anniversary of the 1320 Declaration of Arbroath and will announce a new “Declaration for Scotland”.
Speaking in advance of the launch which will take place at the Buchan Hotel, in Ellon.

Alex Salmond said:


“On week one of the Scottish Parliament elected with an Independence Supermajority, the Scottish Government should seek an instruction from the Parliament to begin Independence negotiations with the Westminster Government.


“However for that to happen people need to Vote ALBA on the list to deliver that Independence Supermajority and to allow those negotiations to begin.  What will change Westminster’s mind about engaging in negotiations is the strength of the votes in Scotland and the knowledge that they are not taking on a single party, the SNP, but a Parliament representing an entire nation.”

  1. Just finished watching this. It was nothing short of wonderful. Once again I’m full of hope for all of us. Alex is ”The Man With The Plan.’

  2. Motivated by Alex today.

    NE Scotland list – to follow up on what he was saying

    SNP 44.7% of the list vote and not one seat.
    Con. 28%
    Lab. 12.6%
    LD. 6%

    Note: 10 constituencies in NE. SNP won 9 so divisor for list 9+1=10
    Con won 1 so divisor for list 1+1 =2

    Seat allocation
    Party………….%…………Div………….%/div……………..seat
    Con…………..28………….2……………..14………………….1
    Lab……………12.6……….1……………..12.6……………….2
    Con……………28………….3……………..9.33……………….3
    Con……………28………….4……………..7……………………4
    Lab…………….12.6……….2……………..6.3…………………5
    LD……………….6…………..1……………..6……………………6
    Con…………….28………….5……………..5.6…………………7

    5.6% wins a seat
    >12% wins two seats
    However only 15% needed in the NE for a dramatic result.

    44.7% of SNP votes wasted. We could easily have FOUR Alba MSP. We could remove FOUR Unionists.

    Look at the 14% delivering FOUR Tories!

  3. Watched Alex today, he was very assured and statesman like in his Q&A session, he even gave a quote from the Declaration of Arbroath, which I thought was a nice touch. Also today and from the 1st of April till the 8th of the month, is the 201st anniversary of the Radical Rising/War.

    O/T again Iain apologies, but this makes my blood boil.

    A bigger membership than the Lib/Dem branch office in Scotland, and more MPs than both SLAB and the Lib/Dems, yet the London run STV is snubbing the ALBA party in its leader debate next Tuesday.

    Of course STV sold Scotland out years ago, it now carries nothing but English made content, and ignores Scottish culture completely, effectively its as big an enemy of Scots and our culture as the BBC.

    STV is a hostile entity to Scotland, as are all the other BritNat channels controlled outwith Scotland.
