On Sunday evening we got a glance of what life would be like under nationalism and Alex Salmond 'we saw the future and it smirks' ( apologies to Bert. Russell ) This is a man who is difficult to like, this man can strut while seated. snide comments and sarcastic laughter are his debating tools and the whole package oozes arrogance, not a pretty sight.
The SNP would have us believe that they are very confident, cocky even, why is it then that they still find it necessary to orchestrate applause for Alex Salmond's every word and heckling for Jack McConnell, the cack handed way this was done on Sunday had everyone cringing with embarrassment, except of course Salmond who is immune to insult he is impervious to everything but blows, the king of the brass necks. Each time the camera showed the audience clapping it was the same people doing it, with two demented looking gnats actually heckling McConnell highlighting very poor chairmanship.
Incidentally one of the 'poles' which didn't get much publicity was Ladbroke's and William Hill's who both have Labour as favourites to win the most Holyrood seats, how often do they get it wrong ?
