Why #BothVotesSNP really matters
The 2011 Scottish election produced a result that was never meant to happen.
A majority pro-independence government, against all odds. So how did voters in Scotland do it?
At the elections, the SNP won 53 constituency seats on the first vote. But it was the 16 seats won on the regional list, with voters second vote, that got the SNP over the line.
It was with people voting Both Votes SNP that secured the first majority government.
Other parties say that you don’t have to vote Both Votes SNP in order to vote for independence. They say people should vote for them instead.
But they said the same in 2016 – and the SNP lost its majority.
Holyrood got less pro-independence MSPs, and Westminster used it as an excuse to question Scotland’s pro-independence mandate.
Their tactical voting gamble has failed.
This election really comes down to one question. Do you want to put Scotland’s future in Scotland’s hands, or those of Boris Johnson?
If you want to help build a better, more progressive future for Scotland, then make it #BothVotesSNP on 6 May.
This will be the most important election in Scottish history. Every single vote will count.
Scotland’s future is in your hands.
