Extracts from SNP cleared of breaking electoral law after Tory challenge

The elections watchdog has dismissed opposition claims that the new independence initiative drive launched by Nicola Sturgeon today breaks campaign law. The Tories had called on the Electoral Commission to investigate concerns that voters may be duped into thinking it is an official Scottish Government survey, instead of an SNP initiative.

“The law states that only election material that seeks to promote a political party or category of candidates at relevant elections is legally required to have an ‘imprint’,”  a spokeswoman for the commission said.

They say the SNP’s ‘National Survey’ collects personal data for the SNP – but has no SNP logos, and uses a design and colour scheme that look like official Scottish Government documents.

Tory chief whip John Lamont had called for the Electoral Commission to look into the issue.
“This is shameless from the SNP – trying to dress up their party political stunt as official business,” he said. Read in full SCOTSMAN

The SNP are REALLY getting on my last nerve. YET AGAIN they have made me agree wi a Tory!


& the fact they are making Tories sound reasonable, SAYS IT ALL about the SNP!

Their survey STINKS o data gathering & note there is no info sharing opt out box you can tick (totally deliberate)

You have to go outta your way & contact them if you want to opt out & most people won’t go to the bother. Which is EXACTLY what the SNP are relying upon.


 It reminds me o the Police Scotland “survey” we had a couple o weeks ago…

I didn’t like their’s & I don’t like the SNP’s!

Extract from Jiggery-pokery of the highest order – the SNP’s ‘National Survey’

a summer initiative targeting No voters across the country in a major drive to put the case for Scottish independence to the electorate [to] assess the merits and shortcomings of the 2014 independence campaign as well as come up with cogent responses to questions on issues such as what currency an independent Scotland would use, its membership of the European Union and its economy

As most people know, the exercise did not happen over summer, knocked off course initially by putative initiative-leader Stewart Hosie’s marital problems and then by all the post-Brexit decision scurrying around. It’s been launched, at last, by the first minister today. The language surrounding it seems to have evolved. For a while it was a national ‘conversation’ and the BBC still call it that on their web site. Meantime, over on the SNP web site Nicola Sturgeon’s calling it a ‘listening exercise.’ But the claims have been rejected by commission chiefs who say that the party affiliation is not necessary as the materials are not seeking to promote the SNP.
