The BBC told us what the 25 top issues are in the Scottish election. They did so by choosing their own 25 and asking 1004 to pot them in orfder. Though they made an issue over replacing windmills (19th) SNP policy they did not ask about building new nuclear *UKIP & to a smaller extent Tory & Labour policy). Well I'm going to try a few here and see how the choice goes. The BBC's top ten are here and if the BBC have chosen in an unbiased way should be the to 10 here as well. Vote for as many of these as you support (2 are more extensive versions of other - if you want the more extensive one but would accept the less extensive fote for both).
