    Intelligent and well-argued article by Nigel Lindsay about how we should respond to the SNP’s problems is well worthy of a read. He rightly points out that around 15% of Scottish voters are pro-independence but not planning to vote SNP, providing an opportunity we should be willing to exploit. Of course, while trying to emphasise our pro-Federalism position and promising to transfer significant extra powers to the Scottish parliament could attract many of these voters, it would run the risk of losing some of the hard-line Unionist voters we have been courting in the past decade. Overall, I think it is worth the risk and is more true to our core beliefs that seeking to out-unionist the other unionist parties.
