Scottish independence; 1.5 million people march in Spain, in Scotland only 5,000 people take to the streets, Alex Salmond's vision remains unattractive, millions of Scots turn their back on him!

Dear All

Here are some statements from Alex Salmond:

‘My problem is that I have too many talented people and not enough Cabinet positions’.


‘Nicola Sturgeon has formidable talents’.

Keep that in your head while reading this.

Recently in Catalonia, 1.5 million people march for independence.

On Saturday, there was an independence rally and march in Scotland.

Did Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon get 1.5 million?


Did they get a 1 million people to march?







No, No, No! 

The truth of the independence march was that according to Police only 5,000 people turned up.

For Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon, it was a personal and utter humiliation.

It was the day that Scotland publicly turned its back on the Salmond/Sturgeon vision of non inclusive nationalism.

In stark contrast, just along the road, 9,908 gathered together to Hibernian and Inverness Caledonian Thistle play.

At Tannadice, Dundee United entertained a crowd of 11,512.

If you attend one of the big car boot sales where people are selling ‘tat’ you can get a decent crowd each week and possibly pick up a bargain. Anyone think the 5,000 would march every week?

I don’t!

Catalonia, 1.5 million people march for independence, Scotland under Salmond and Sturgeon 5,000 people.

So, what is the problem?

The problem is that there are many problems and most of them are all self-inflicted.

There isn’t a vision, there isn’t a plan, there is contempt for ordinary people and the Salmond/Sturgeon clique has been found wanting.

The march had on paper everything going for it, independence is a just cause, the sun was shinning and Edinburgh is a nice city.

But the whole thing turned out to be a shambles, however the SNP and Yes Scotland distanced themselves by saying this wasn’t their event.

SNP Cabinet Ministers and Yes Scotland members all took official roles.

So, it’s a massive flop, not unexpected and not unsurprising.

As far as I can tell the Salmond vision is that instead of Scots being abused by people from England, we can be abused by people with a Scottish accent and have less rights than we do at present!

And for that privilege we also pay them huge sums of money.

Is that a vision?

I think not!

The SNP say that independence is 50% plus 1, the reality is at present according to the figures of the march, the SNP can't get 1 percent plus 50 of the Scottish population to turn out!

This morning already the SNP HQ has spent 2 hours 48 mins 50 secs on this blog because apparently I am not entitled to free speech and I am not entitled to my legal rights.


Salmond's people seem to be able to take time out to continue discrimination, maybe they should take a long hard look at themselves, because it is easy to figure why working class Scots are turning their backs on them.

They don't stand for fairness, equality and social justice, they are a nasty poisonous vicious clique which the people of Scotland will have no part of.

So, what would I say to Alex Salmond, Nicola Sturgeon and Peter Murrell after the way I have been treated?

Stupid people deserve what they get and what goes around comes around.

Yours sincerely

Snp boast of 19,000 members, 5,000 turn up for the march, just like you've been saying, even their own members now see Salmond and Sturgeon and their poisonous clique for what they are.
People realise soon enough that they are being used and this seems like the penny has dropped for a lot of my fellow members.
