Salmond is jumping up and down at this front page satire. Humourless twit!

For the little Ingerlanders on here with their fishing rods...

...I think this article is a complete disgrace, & wholly unrepresentative of the real Scotland. Perhaps they would be better turning their unfunny satire elsewhere...

Right, I've said it. I'm now off to complain to the Editor, once I sharpen my claymore.

how wierd, it appears I am about to agree with a Scot about the economist!

I anticipated a rational piece with numbers, charts, analysis, eight-by-ten colour glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was to be used as evidence.

But that's not what appeared - was 2 pages, just, with a lot of approximated opinion.

Not up to the Economist standard

At the moment maybe, but a pointer to the future. By the time the predictions have materialised Salmond will be well in his grave and the populace will be tearing down the statues that were erected to laud the smug loon.

50% of your takings be mine then?

Looking to become a journo when you PVR/VR Seldom? Apparently The Economist couldn't make one of their gobsh*tes available for tonight's Channel 4 News; perhaps you could help them out in future?

Yep I get the joke - now its my turn.

On Thursday evening having just got home from teaching an ex "hair dresser" -( it was the BNP tattoo's and his considerable height advantage over "Da CAT" that a indicated that a modicum tact: be applied in this interaction) , had the fortunate event of a visitation from my local prospective conservative counsel candidate (and friend).

CAT III not being brightest of souls took nearly 500 milliseconds to identify the two blue rosettes presented within his rather limited visual field in the gathering darkness (no pun implied) - Having gathered my marble together I entered into a brief conversation with the two gents.

We agreed that it was too close: to really evaluate the damage occasioned by Nu Labour and that I had indeed voted Lib Dem (Sorry) to prevent keep a certain party out - One of the "Gents" agreed with me at the current leader was a "mistake" and that indeed the best government we had was that of '46.

My assertion that both acquaint themselves with the work of Eric Hobsbourne - All four tracts, seemed to provoke a longing to escape chez CAT III - and I must admit that my polite suggestion, that they avail themselves of the un-privatized facilities provided by the rusty gate hinge, was duly taken up with enthusiasm.

They keep refering to "renewable energy" as the big Scottish earner after oil.

Now... if Scotland goes it alone, who is going to buy all the windfarm, hydro and ocean-derived electricity?

Oil goes into a big ship and the big ship can go anywhere-on-sea.

Electricty goes along itsy-bitsy cables (assuming they haven't been nicked by enterprising

Sooo... it will all have to be bought by.... oh! the English.

Now all this "renewable" stuff is only viable with (a) massive subsidies... or... (b) insane pricing to the end consumer.

Only a complete set of morons would insist that (a) the taxpayer subsidises imports of energy from a foreign country or (b) insist that the consumer/national industry is crippled by insane energy pricing schedules.

So the English won';t be buying all this insanely expensive 'renewable' energy because no-one in Whitehall would be moronic enough to insist that

OH B*GG*R I think I've spotted a flaw in my reasoning

Except, G&T, you already do "import" energy, both "green" and otherwise, at stupid prices anyway so what would the difference be?
