Vengeance may be said to be a dish best served cold but Alex Salmond, in the words of Robert Burns, his favourite poet, has been “nursing his wrath to keep it warm” every day of these past 11 months. So much so that most observers, including this one, now reckon that his long-cherished political aim – Scottish independence – is taking a poor second place to that of destroying Sturgeon.
Whether ScotIndy should happen or not is an interesting question. One that should be decided by mature reflection and consideration. I think yes but so what?
The claim here is that it will actually be decided by which demented porridge wog lied about the other.
Politics is, clearly, a really shitty way of running things.
