Am I alone in considering that the photograph of Salmond in the link kindly supplied by Seldom is extremely strange.
What type of weido would chose to have his photograph taken in front of not one, but two oil paintings of himself.
This is a further example of Salmond suspect mental state of grandiose self adoration, the sensible Scots must be groaning with embaressment that this creature has put himself forward as the face of Scotland.

The wee schemie really is the pits. She has the manners of a Weegie gutter-snipe.

The Nationalist-Socialists are republican is nature, but not many would snub the Queen so crassly as to sit down before Her Majesty.



What a horrible little tyke she is.

Pleasing to note that a decisive majority of Scots support independence.

(apologies for the asterisks but you know what to do)

Supporters of the English rancid nationalist party will be pleased to note the almost negligible level of support for them.

Balcony-dwellers, please desist from insulting respected politicians. It merely makes you even more infantile than you already are. Thank you.

I'll respect your politicians when they respect their Queen, and respect the will of the population as expressed in the once-in-a-generation referendum.

But that will mean a different set of politicians, who have the good of the people in mind instead of their own crude personal ambitions.

What I note (from the first set of figures) is that the pro-independence parties total 50% and the pro-union parties total 50%. Doesn't look like a decisive majority of residents in Scotland supporting independence, but then I look at the whole picture, not just the blinkered view I want to see

From the other figures in that blog I still see less than a decisive majority wanting independence - even the poll on the question asked in the referendum showed less than 50% thought Scotland should be an independent country.

To adapt your own earlier quote ps...

Always amusing to see the Muppets and local websites believe the entirely made up drivel that appears in nationalist blogs.

You didn't see this?

"Should Scotland be an independent country?

Yes 48%
No 45%"

No, of course you didn't.

As stated above, that still does not show a decisive majority wanting independence, it shows 48%, less than half, want independence

Then there is this bit...

Scottish voting intentions for the May 2015 UK general election :
SNP 45.0% (+2.4)
Labour 26.5% (-0.4)
Conservatives 16.7% (+0.6)
Liberal Democrats 4.5% (-1.8)
UKIP 3.5% (-1.1)
Greens 2.9% (+0.5)

That poll shows pro-independence parties polling LESS THAN 50%, so no decisive majority there either

As Brent Crude drops to $61.85.


Brent crude was $67.30 a barrel on Monday afternoon. That's a drop of nearly 10% in six days.

Including the don't knows that gives 52:48 majority that have not said yes in favour of independence.

But, as Rob said, the only poll that mattered was held just under 3 months ago and luckily for us we voted against being an independent country

The only poll that matters is the next one. 2017 is just around the corner.

Once in a generation buddy and you blew it

This isnt the EU when people keep voting until they get the answer the politicians want and the power to call another referendum has not been devolved

BTW what do you think of the oil price?

Things are different on Planet Perth, but in our spiral arm of the galaxy 38% does not, and never will, constitute a majority.

Here's how the numbers pan out in the real world.

At the last count there were 4,283,392 registered voters in Scotland. That is what is called "the electorate".

1,617,789 of the electorate voted Yes.

1,617,789 / 4,283,392 = 0.3777354 * 100 = 37.77354%

That's reality. All else is bullshit.
