    Default SNP Home And Hosed In Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross?

    With a bit of time to go to the actual Polling Day the Bookmakers have taken the view that it is all over and done for John Thurso and the Lib Dems in the local constituency.

    The SNP have been favourites for quite some time but the odds have been sliced this past week or so and are now at a level where it is considered a virtual certainty that they will triumph.

    You have to hand it to these bookies, who have odds available for every seat up and down the country, be it one hundred to one odds-on shoo ins or otherwise.

    Earlier odds had SNP 2/5 Favourites and the Lib Dems 15/8 but the best price now available on the SNP is 2/7 with William Hill and as low as 1/8 with some firms. Lib Dems vary from 5/2 out to 9/2.

    Basically the odds indicate that the worst case scenario odds give John Thurso an 18% chance of keeping his seat and it's deemed as certain as an 89% chance that the SNP will gain the seat.

    Best everyone who voted Yes in the referendum tactically votes Lib Dem and gives the SNP the bloody nose they truly deserve.

    Sticks in my throat a bit to do so but I really can't be doing with another referendum in a year or two.

    Once in a generation...once in a lifetime ....yeah yeah we all believe that ...NOT .

    I am not big on politics, but I have to say that John Thurso fought my corner on an issue I had with Business Stream that were pursuing me relentlessly for an unreasonable amount of money that I did not owe them, all my efforts to make them see sense failed but a few letters yours truly got them off my back.

    Having said that, I had a card from the post office to say that they could not deliver two letters due to unpaid deficient postage. I collected the two letters from the sorting office and paid the 1.54 each because stamped on them was IMPORTANT, the contents was more important to them than it was to me and they were the same letter sent twice with no stamps.
    My thoughts were that this is a party that would aspire to run the country, but cant even get their own basic admin right.
    A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.

    Me too! I took a problem to John Thurso and he spared no effort to sort it. And I know other folk that he has helped. I will be voting for the man, not the party.

    What actually has John Thurso done for the county that you could say has his stamp on it? Nothing really.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    What has the SNP done? They have had 7 years, Oh yes the Trams at cost, people who have right to take over land public money. Stop people who live in Council houses if they wanted to buy, and split the country in half and scotland families. What great job SNP has done so far.

A complete non entity.
