What are the (policy) differences between Solidarity, the SSP, Labour for Independence and indeed the SNP? I think I understand how the Greens are different.

You would think that it would help the overall Yes campaign if the Left was less splintered (?)

Maybe the difference is down to strong personalities (?)

The difference between the Scottish Socialist Party and Solidarity is Tommy`s Zip, his inability to keep it shut, and the same for his gub. All his previous good works have long since been eclipsed by ”Zippergate“.
The Scottish Green party, in my humble opinion, has went from Scottish Independence and Environmental Issues under that ”Tom Baker” lookalike to almost exclusive LGBT issues by Patrick whathisface.

How does the Scottish Socialist Party compare with Labour for Independence? Is a future merger possible?

Labour for Independence is good because not everyone likes Salmond and a lot of peopl vote Labour.

Personally I don't think Yes Scotland need be the only show in town.

Don't forget the anti-religious angle... Patrick Harvie seemed to take great glee in the downfall of Cardinal O' Brien, even though Roman Catholics outnumber hardcore Greens about ten to one...

However, they have done something really good recently... which is that they've alloted their time to a debate about Maggie Thatcher, during her funeral! Nice one!

That's why we probably need the left... the SSP kept on pushing the anti-nuclear angle and republicanism, when the SNP mostly kept shtum about it.
