 Goodbye Rennie - Hello Harvie
Topic Originator: DBP  
Date:   Sun 9 May 13:50

Normally on things like the bbc news, we listen to snp and then Tory, Labour and Lib Dem.

With Lib Dem’s no longer a ‘proper party’, ie less than 5 seats which means no place on certain committees etc and greens with double the msps, I’m looking forward to those interviews now being snp and then Tory, Labour and then greens

Will actually be a bit more representative of the country anyway. Ie 50/50 Indy/unionists

Would be very surprised to see the BBC giving Greens airtime ahead of Lib Dems.

Are they legally required to?

Cause if not then it won't happen they are unionist puppets.

surely, the bbc can`t ignore the fact that the electorate have voted greens as the 4th (and last `proper`) party of Holyrood and give them the required airtime as they have done for the lib dems for the duration of the previous parliament?!?!?


the scotsman`s summary of the lib dems,

"The big losers electorally is the Scottish Liberal Democrats.

The failure of the party to pick up an additional seat on the regional list, despite an excellent day in the constituencies where they held on to all four of their seats, will put them below the threshold of five seats, which means the party will be given additional rights in Holyrood.

That result will see them unable to gain representation on the business bureau, where parties decide on the business of the parliament for the week, and will lose a guaranteed question at First Minister’s Questions.
It is also another election where the party has failed to make national gains and those heady days of leading the Scottish Government in coalition seem a long time ago.

Willie Rennie may come under pressure to resign his position as leader of the party, but he is well liked by many and there is no sign at the moment of any manoeuvres to have him replaced.

His thumping majority in North East Fife will likely be viewed as an endorsement for his leadership."

Willie Rennie obviously should have done more photo stunts during the campaign. What was that all about?

The Lib Dems have been strangely quiet today or is that maybe because the media no longer see them as a major party?
