Gaming Holyrood

Will unionists or nationalists succeed in beating the Scottish system?

Alex Salmond is encouraging Scottish nationalists to ‘game’ Holyrood’s electoral system by voting for their SNP constituency candidate but on the regional ballot list voting for Salmond’s Alba Party. Would the same tactical voting work for Scottish unionists? In this podcast, All For Unity’s leader, Jamie Blackett makes the case for voting for George Galloway’s pro-union alliance to The Critic’s political editor, Graham Stewart.
