The figure to note is the 10,759 votes for the Green Party, which ensured that Patrick Harvie was re-elected to the Scottish Parliament. Now add up the votes for the SSP and Solidarity:
Solidarity - 8,544 votes
SSP - 2,579 votes
Total - 11,123 votes
That's a sore yin. Curious to see what Sheridan's next move is . . . after the denunciations and recriminations that is.
Daft as it sounds, despite Solidarity outpolling the SSP by nearly 6000 votes in Glasgow, I think the latter has more of a future as a going concern than the shotgun wedding of Sheridan, the Swuppies and the Millies.
The usual suspects on the blogs, messageboards and the yahoo discussion groups will make for interesting reading in the coming weeks.
