This picture sums everything up beautifully.
Taken in Greenock earlier, prior to the First Minister's visit. It seems an appropriate image for today.

Labour using a fake letter from a "neighbour". This is fraud surely?
We know that politicians are allowed to lie in election literature, but we're struggling to see how this isn't fraud, which is something different altogether. Click the image to see both letters fu...

Of course, any compalint will be referred and reviewed over the next couple of weeks. Labour rely on the election being well over by then...

Just received one of these from Jo Swinson, the soon to be former MP for East Dunbartonshire.

I'm sure my mother who worked in the NHS would be so pleased that the disease that killed her aged 62 a fee months ago is being used by the MP she elected as a political weapon.

Slightly odd bit in today's East Dunbartonshire hustings in Bearsden, where it appeared a unionist in the audience called the SNP candidate a "traitor" for supporting independence.

That has to be the most desperate attempt at creating a scandal there has ever been. #dollgate  
Nicola Sturgeon was doing so well - her poll results were up, her debate appearances were widely praised and people were even talking about the SNP holding the balance of power in the general election. But today - Saturday 25 April - will be marke...

Know the feeling Anthony,I missed all the pre Referendum events for similar reasons and work commitments and sometimes just plain not finding out about them till it was too late, I am so jinxed that I missed seeing Nicola in the town I work in and in my (and her) home town in the same week, but even if I had  missed this one, the big Hope over Fear event will be playing out soon right in the comfort of our own homes. So lets get the popcorn out for all those lovely "Portillo moments"coming soon!

Can't say I'm surprised there, she was pretty obviously a plant.
(not satire - it's the BBC!) A supposedly undecided businesswoman in the BBCQT audience - who strongly attacked Ed Miliband - set up her company with a Tory MP and signed the dodgy letter supportin...

I get the following feelings:

1. Unionists bang on about a second referendum because they're scared they'd lose it
2. Unionists don't realise that it's possible to vote "no" in a second referendum as well.

Can someone please ban +GREY SawKINGs and +W12MODS from this community. They've got nothing useful to say.

+Chris Renwick I understand the difficulty of moderating in a fair and even handed way and allowance have to be made for people getting heated in discussions that can be fast paced and passionate. I would never even attempt to do a moderators job.  but out of all the people I have crossed political swords with W12MODS was the most worrying. I will not go into the reasons why, but I breath a sigh of relief for the safety of others here, that he is now banned.
