Having spent a year strutting around Holyrood like a brutal prison guard, with a sycophantic anti Labour media urging on the bully.
Salmond (the spiv) has been forced to go "homeward to think again" following his accusations that Wendy Alexander was useless, that her position was untenable, that she should resign etc. etc. he is suddenly challenged by her to 'put up or shut up' and he 'shuts up'
He stitches the Scottish people under independence to allegiance to the British Throne. (bonny Chairlie's noo awa) that's for sure now, no way back for the wee man, the 'spiv's gied him the mallet. (no dissent ?)
He publicly states that a pact with the Westminster Tories is on the cards, (history repeating itself)
He accuses the PM of cowardice for abandoning election plans because he doubted he could win ! isn't that a cracker ? who has just backed away from a referendum because he knows he can't win ? despite claiming that 80 % of Scots favour independence ? Yes it's Alex (the spiv)
Stir in the right wing budget and you can't help but feel the pain of those old nationalists who believed in the cause, where are they ? has Alex (the spiv) banished them to the 'Utter Hebrides' along with Sillars and Margo, "will they no come back again"
If the 'spiv' is ever sworn in as PM of an independent Scotland he will do so in the presence of the British Monarch under the fluttering Union Jack and applauded by Tories and the business community.
Ochone, Ochone will no one in the SNP speak out ? Scotland lies bleeding and the 'spiv' is twisting the knife.
