HOW BACK­LASH FROM VOT­ERS THINNED THE SNP RANKS

-

TWO years ago, 56 SNP MPs, above, lined up with Ni­cola Stur­geon in front of the Forth Bridge af­ter a Gen­eral Elec­tion land­slide. The MoS has ‘ghosted out’ those 22 who are no longer MPs.

Some 20 were voted out while Michelle Thom­son and Natalie McGarry were dropped by the party fol­low­ing sep­a­rate po­lice probes.

The SNP won Ms McGarry’s old seat with a new can­di­date, mean­ing their losses were 21 seats.

So only 35 Na­tion­al­ist MPs will re­turn to West­min­ster to­mor­row.
