RFK/JFKfan Posted May 10, 2011 Share Posted May 10, 2011 Let's say that a referendum on Scottish independence is held in 2014, and the "Yes" side wins. The first-ever Scottish Presidential ELection is held the following year. I would guess that Scotland adopts a standard European-style party system - Social Democrats, Christian Democrats, Liberals, Socialists with the addition of a "Re-unite the Union" party. The Social Democrats dominate urban Scotland, while the Christian Democrats and the Liberals fight it out in most rural areas. The Socialists may sometimes challenge the Social Democrats in their traditional strongholds such as Glasgow. Candidates: Social Democrats: Alex Salmond Nicola Sturgeon (Off) Gordon Brown (Off) Charles Kennedy Angus Robertson (Off) Jim Murphy Iain Gray (Off) Christian Democrats: Annabel Goldie David Mundell Michael Forsyth John Scott Liberals: Michael Moore Tavish Scott Willie Rennie Danny Alexander (Off) Menzies Campbell (Off) Socialists: George Galloway Tommy Sheridan (Off) Rosemary Byrne Any other ideas?
