Why can't you just post normally instead of all this lecturing.    Yes I knew more people voted against SNP than for it.   And surely democracy was working when the SNP supported a vote of confidence in Labour.    Why exclude Thatcher?    Her tenure seemed to last forever.

The SNP supported a vote of no-confidence. They are responsible for the fall of the Labour government, which paved the way for Thatcher. Quite ironic.

Snuggling up to Trump against the wishes of the local people, is why I dislike him so much. Also, he was quite keen on Murdoch at one stage.
Can't really think of many/any politician I'd trust, tbh.

Nice article, blueberryhill.

Quote
The SNP leader is also heavily criticised in the film by residents of the Menie Estate for ignoring problems allegedly caused by work on the golf resort. Salmond refused to answer any of Baxter’s questions or to be interviewed.

Salmond refusing to answer questions? Never!

Meanwhile, the bloke himself has been bullying a top academic.

Another day, another one of Salmond's massive lies about independence exposed.

Begs the question: given that he has now been show to have lied about Europe, lied about oil, lied about the NHS and lied about currency... why do you trust him to tell the truth about anything else?

Don't trust any politician to tell the truth.    Don't trust newspapers to tell the truth either.   I do wonder why you are so angry about Alex Salmond.

Not keen on that either, bbh.   But all politicians snuggle up to people I would not allow across my doorstep.   No one is right all the time, not even Alex Salmond, but he puts Scotland first and therefore he has my vote,

   If I were asked to choose between a statement by Salmond and an article in the Torygraph based on the comments of a Spanish politician with a separatist political headache of his own, i know where my balance of judgement would lie. You really are foaming at the mouth now, Boogers.

You'd choose the respected news publication over the proven compulsive liar, surely?

No.    But I would choose Alex Salmond over the Telegraph.   Get a grip, Boogers.

   False choice. Both these statements are opinions, not facts, neither of which I subscribe to.
