Scotland Is Standing Back Up! Westminster Watch Out!

Around 7,000 people are said to have been in Glasgow yesterday from all over Scotland. Few of my friends went through from Edinburgh

Hope over fear was a tag line used by Tommy Sheridan who was the one who organised this huge event in Glasgow yesterday. When Nicola was there days before she was like a superstar, everyone wanted to see her, speak to her. As a nation we felt confidence before the September 14th 2014 Referendum for Scotland to be free from the British Union. We didn’t feel sorry for ourselves, we waited and then we stood back up. More people will vote SNP on May 7th than every before, with 6 Westminster seats today for the SNP the polls are predicting over 50 with 59 being the most the SNP can win. Should more than 50 SNP Members win and get into Westminster then Home Rule will be given quicker, Scotland will have 1/6 of the voice of BRITISH POLITICS! That is something. The nation has taken to Nicola Sturgeon, I don’t just mean Scotland I mean the UK. She is loved all over with many in England asked if they can vote for her in on May 7th, lets vote SNP into Westminster so Alex Salmond can stand up with us Scotland

Once again the “Sturgeon effect” is in evidence at the top of Buchanan Street – Glasgow’s Oxford Street minus the tat. Huge crowds gathered to hear the SNP leader launch the party’s policy in gender equality. Picture this: no cops visible. No heckling. Not a situation any PR bod could do much to control. And all that in this plastic election? Shurley, indeed, shome mishtake?

What was also obvious was the large number of punters – beyond the usual set-dressing party activists – who had stopped and waited to hear here. This I have not seen in the Scottish election battle on the streets on this scale, and wherever you stand with the SNP it is undeniably impressive.

Even a gender equality launch bang opposite Topman cannot stick to Teflon Nicola. Even the bizarre appearance of ultra-short-skirted cheerleaders cannot stick to Teflon Nicola. Suddenly the ever-broken specs on the Donald Dewar statue overlooking this event look more poignant. What would he have made of the SNP political behemoth roaring across this land when all he wanted was to make independence go away with Devo-Min?

Grave? Spinning?

It took Ms Sturgeon more than 45 minutes to walk the 80 metres from Buchanan Steps to the interview position. The selfie-surge engulfed her as it might a film-star – except you get to doughnut/selfie/blether with Nicola Sturgeon.

Some news just in: there are unconfirmed reports from a forest outside Crieff that a voter has not yet got a selfie with Ms sturgeon. We’ll bring you more later in this blog if we get it…

It is something close to adoration and this cannot be faked – that is the point, and as a seasoned correspondent you report what you see and I have never seen this in a UK election. Never. A few hundred metres away and huge numbers of people are at a rally in support for her party – not organised by her party – which she won’t even visit, much less speak at.

The Tommy Sheridan bandwagon has pitched tent in George Square. For the “socialist firebrand” of tabloid shorthand, today’s “Hope over Fear” rally is going full throttle in the sunshine. Saltires in the breeze, kilts, Kurds, socialists, toddlers with painted faces – all getting in the mood for Tommy S.

It seems largely ignored by the mainstream media in Scotland. But I am intrigued by it all. Strive as I might I cannot see crowds of NHS workers filling Trafalgar Square for Labour – or the Countryside Alliance (remember them?) donning the Barbours for the Tories – or the something-or-other for the Lib Dems.

Couldn’t happen somehow, could it?

That is why George Square matters today. It speaks to a shift of mood in the country.
