Pro-indy blogger Stuart Campbell says his new party would target Unionist seats

A pro-independence blogger considering creating a new political party has said his aim would be to increase the number of pro-independence list MSPs in the Scottish Parliament.

Stuart Campbell, of the Wings Over Scotland website, stressed that the idea was "just a thought" at the moment.

But he told the BBC's Good Morning Scotland programme it was "highly unlikely" that a new party would split the pro-independence vote.

Mr Campbell said the aim would be to take list seats from unionist parties rather than to target the SNP.
