There’s already opinion polling within the subject concerning the Alba Get together.
It’s arduous to say how the get together will do at such an early stage. However what we DO know is that it has a really low bar to clear – all it has to do is come out forward of the Greens and/or the Lib Dems (ie most likely rating about 6%) to destroy any doable rationale for it not being included in election debates just like the one the BBC is exhibiting tonight.
The case for inclusion can be vastly heightened if the brand new get together is talked about at tonight’s debate with out being given the best of reply, and it might be very unusual and synthetic if it wasn’t, given the degree of response its existence has provoked.
(There have been quite a few different Alba-related questions within the ballot too.)
We’ll be watching (the ballot outcomes, not the talk, clearly) with curiosity.
