So what did we learn from the 8 hours of the Salmond inquiry today, apart from what we already know, i.e. that Salmond is an egotistical, paranoid. sexual predator whose main aim is to bring the Scottish government down?
Aileen - it is very bizarre what Salmond’s actions are all about - his own defence stated that his behaviour was not in line with the office that he held and whilst he was cleared of criminal charges there was obviously concerns about his behaviours. I read his book “The Dream will Never Die” and Independence is and always has been his dream but it’s almost like he doesn’t want anybody else to deliver it for Scotland. Alex Salmond must be mighty impressed with all these new “friends” he has from Tory, Labour and Lib Dem - when he was FM he was one of the most despised people in politics out with his own party!!!!
I watched bits of the inquiry yesterday - I thought NS answered well and remained calm at all times despite the sometimes vitriolic way she was being questioned - judging by the increase in membership for the SNP her appearance yesterday has had a positive impact on both her party and the Indy movement.
It’s not about “whataboutery” as another poster commented - why are the same levels of scrutiny not in place across the U.K. if we are as they say “all together” in this. Despite what your political beliefs are I bet there are very few people who believe Boris and Co could stand up to that level of questioning .
It is sheer hypocrisy what is happening and for Dross and Davidson to be shouting VONC when one is sloping off to the House of Lords and the other won’t stand in the elections for a constituency seat but is entering via the back door for a list seat defies actual belief!!!
Interesting few days coming up tho.
As I have said are the SNP perfect - No far from it but they offer the best deal as far as I can see. Hence why it’s SNP 1 and 2 for me in May.
