SNP Membership Surges After Sturgeon Committee Evidence

The Scottish National Party is experiencing a huge membership surge this evening after the First Minister’s evidence session earlier today at the Scottish Parliament Committee on the Scottish Government Handling of Harassment Complaints.

The First Minister’s widely televised appearance today in front of the committee, with her calm and assured handling of what were often very hostile questions from opposition committee members including Jackie Baillie (Labour) and Margaret Mitchell (Conservatives) seems to have triggered a spike in membership applications, with people who had earlier left the party also rejoining.

Twitter and Facebook are full of people sharing membership links and membership application confirmations. The concerted media campaign against the SNP and independence over the last few months appears to be backfiring in some style. The Deputy First Minister has been quick to welcome the influx.
