What are we to make of wee Eck (the spiv) hawking himself around the radio and TV stations to muscle in on the Scotland V England Rugby match? Forget the fact that he dodged a bullet when Scotland decided to field their ladies team, that's a separate issue. Is it not simply the case that senior politicians regularly show up at these events on the understanding that it is apolitical and should not be exploited? That; based on the evidence available rules out (the spiv) Salmond whose reputation over many years is that of a man who cannot see a belt without hitting below it.
Would anyone trust this charlatan whose instinct was to score political points when he witnessed houses and business premises being burned as well as injuries, loss of life and arrests being made when the recent riots occurred? His comments and his repugnant behaviour over this when he tried to suggest that such events were peculiar to England and did not happen in Scotland were all too typical of a man who as first minister has brought shame and embarrassment on his office and on the Scottish people. Are the people of Scotland beginning to rumble him? Let's hope so.
