George Galloway slams SNP’s ‘misgovernance’ of Scotland
George Galloway issued a blistering rant against the SNP’s “misgovernment,” as the former MP slapped down Nicola Sturgeon and her party for “sinking Scotland”. He made the remarks as he announced that his Alliance for Unity party was now registered with the Electoral Commission. Mr Galloway has urged tactical voting against the SNP in May’s Holyrood elections to “end the neverendums”.
In a video uploaded to social media, Mr Galloway said: “Our message hasn’t changed – vote for the best-placed candidate to defeat the SNP with your first vote and give your second vote to the Alliance for Unity.
“That way we maximise the number of people in the Scottish Parliament at Holyrood who want to end the neverendums and who want to attend to Scotland’s deep-seated economic, social and other problems.
“For 14 years, the SNP has been sinking Scotland.
“It is time to save Scotland. Vote for all for unity in every region in Scotland. We are coming to get the SNP.”

He laid out his project for “a government of national unity to bring the SNP misgovernment of Scotland finally to an end”.
Mr Galloway later tweeted that his plans were a “game-changer” for Scotland.
Viewers were delighted with the message, responding: “We badly need the SNP removed.”
Another added: “Let’s do this; let’s all get behind the one party, that wants to unite the country and rid Scotland of divisive, vile secessionist nationalism for good.”
SNP ‘cannot deliver on promises’ with independence says expert
Earlier today, a new YouGov poll, commissioned by pro-UK campaign group Scotland Matters, showed that Tory supporters were “open to tactical voting to stop SNP majority in May”.
The latest polling suggested that 56 percent of people who voted Tory in the 2019 general election would back a Unionist pact to prevent Nicola Sturgeon from winning a majority.
Ms Sturgeon has vowed to use a pro-independence majority in Holyrood to heap pressure on Boris Johnson for another referendum early in the next parliament.

Almost a third of Liberal Democrat voters also supported the proposal, with only 21 per cent opposed.
However, only 15 per cent of Labour voters said they would be willing to vote for a Tory or Liberal Democrat candidate to stop a Nationalist winning.
Douglas Ross, the Scottish Tory leader, has said he would work with Labour to try and stop another independence referendum.
Allan Sutherland, the spokesman for Scotland Matters, said: “We welcome the Conservatives’ recent support of tactical voting and urge all pro-UK parties to work together to avoid splitting the vote and stop the SNP and Greens winning a pro-independence majority in the Holyrood elections in May.”
This comes amid growing chaos within the SNP as former frontbencher Joanna Cherry accused the SNP of “Stalinism” after she was sacked as the party’s spokeswoman on home affairs.
The row marks one of the SNP’s worst internal rows in recent party history, despite riding high in the polls ahead of May’s election.
