Brian Monteith: The SNP needs and wants a Tory election victory | My Scotland | Scoop.it
The calling of a General Election by the Prime Minister may have caught everyone by surprise but it does not change the fundamentals of the current political scene – only a game-changing event, such as last year’s vote to leave the EU, or a vote for Scotland to leave the UK will do that.

Theresa May has just handed Scottish independence to Nicola Sturgeon on a plate | My Scotland | Scoop.it
Nicola Sturgeon must be rubbing her hands with glee at this moment. In the aftermath of Theresa May’s announcement to hold a snap election, Sturgeon knows how most Scots will receive the news: badly. Provided May is allowed to hold the election by Parliament, it will most likely lead to a Conservative victory and further degradation of the opposition – one poll predicts the Conservatives will end up with a 100-seat lead in Parliament. So long 2020: May could stay in power until 2022.
