That's a very good question, Joe. However, there are a lot of Nationalist nutters in Scotland who don't seem to understand the bigger picture - also many elderly folks see Salmond as 'doing things' for Scotland. I think he has a way of ingratiating himself as many Politicians do - However, I think he's transparent.
I think we should thank God for a transparent politician if that is what Alex Salmond is. I find
him somewhat bombastic but he is the only politician I know who will put Scotland first and for that
reason has my vote. Whoever is in power will try to hijack Andy but that guy is not for hijacking!!!
I think he should do whatever he feels right for him and he must be sick to death of compulsory media
