I hear on good authority that Tommy Sheridan is telling people to vote SNP in this week's by election. Indeed he was overheard to be saying to people "thank you for your support but if you want to change anything here, vote SNP". I hope that's true and if it is, I'm shocked and delighted in equal measure. It's not an easy thing to do. I can't think of any circumstances in which I would advise anyone to vote anything other than SNP. Mind you that's because I don't believe that any other party (including Tommy's) genuinely supports Independence. They may not be genuine in their desire for an Independent nation but this advice on tactical votes indicates a willingness to sacrifice short term gain for the long term benefit of the community. That halo's not quite as tarnished as it once was ...
