I've been critical about how the SNP handled the general election campaign and was pleased to read Alex Porter's excellent assessments, here and here.
He too supports Scottish independence and is unafraid, unlike many, to be clear as to where the problems lie.
The SNP has had chances in the past year to push ahead with an independence agenda but failed. The result? The vacuous, policy-devoid labour party won the general election by some miles.
Only recently I suggested if the SNP prefer the politics of devolution then they could at least be honest with the electorate. We deserve to know.
