Scottish independence: Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond says he is “Scottish and British” but it’s a student who steals the show with a self evident truth, some people he said can't stand him, epic defeat at the ballot box draws near

Dear All

Last night Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond was in Glasgow, in fact he was at the Mitchell Library giving a talk.

He said Scottish independence would not solve all the country's problems.

Just as his Scottish Government haven’t solved problems in the NHS, Education and Justice, despite the SNP having total control of these departments.

It seems brains are in short supply.

In what must be a joke, Salmond said he regarded himself as British.

Oh and he has a "multi-layered" identity.

However, he didn’t go so far as including he was a citizen of Planet Earth.

Maybe next time!

At the Mitchell Library theatre in Glasgow; he added that independence would not lead to homes being fitted with "three taps, for oil, whisky and water".

He said:

"I've never argued that. I suspect we'll never have no problems, but I'm certain we can do better than we are doing now."

That means if you are poor now, you will be poor in an independent Scotland and possibly worse off if Scotland was to end up in the Euro.

He also said Scotland was "proudly a mongrel nation."

Do you feel like a mongrel?

He also stated that Scots were welcoming towards immigrants and enthusiastic about the European Union.

However this view could change if Salmond has an open door immigration policy, an experiment that was a failure under the Labour Party.

He also defended his claims an independent Scotland would be fast-tracked into the EU.

That is fantasy!

And so as not to frighten the horses, he repeated the SNP's pledge that Scotland would not adopt the euro single currency in the event of a Yes vote.

I think his word doesn’t have any currency with many people these days.
He said:

"We would not join the euro in the foreseeable future and no-one can force us to join the euro."

That doesn’t mean he never join, just holding off because there is a referendum.

Then came, the real rubbish, which is that the UK Government would agree to establish a currency union.

This has been ruled out by the main political parties in Westminster.

Chancellor George Osborne has hinted no.

Salmond added:

"Once the decision [to become independent] is taken, people will do what is in the best interests of the people of Scotland and the people of the UK. A sterling area is in the best interests of the people of Scotland and the UK."

Scotland would be controlled by Westminster as they set Scotland’s budgets and monetary policy.

On Nato, he said:

"We have to present our case for independence in a way that does not present problems for our friends and allies."

That’s why some SNP members left, including two MSPs from his party!

He said he remained completely confident of victory.

What a deluded fool, he used the same bluster in 2010 claiming the SNP would have 20 MPs at Westminster; they failed to gain any additional seats.

Salmond said:

"We'll win the referendum. One thing the polls do wrong is ask people how they would vote tomorrow. The referendum is not tomorrow; it's in September. Just like a horse race, it doesn't matter who is leading at the home bend, it is who leading when you get to the post."

He should wake up, the race is over; the Vet is now brought in to shoot the Nationalist racehorse, a nag presented as a stallion.

He said a fundamentally positive" campaign would always beat a "fundamentally negative" campaign, adding: "At the end of the day, people want to vote for something, not against something."

So; 2010 wasn’t a “fundamentally positive" campaign?

People will be voting positive, positively against him and Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s poisonous vision.

He said the Yes camp would fight a "head and heart campaign" which is crony driven with no one to work as activists for him.

Salmond added:

"There has to be aspiration and emotion and sentiment in politics. There has to be an aspirational element as well as a purely intellectual element. There is a belief I have in this campaign. People want to do the right thing. People are taking a huge amount of time, whichever way they are leaning, because they want to do the right thing. All these things I read in the papers about people not being engaged, it's rubbish."

Check the polls, people have disengaged with Him!

Salmond also spoke of his wish to take part in a debate ahead of the referendum with David Cameron.

That will never happen; the fight is not Salmond against Cameron, its Salmond as the working class people of Scotland.

The funniest joke came when he said he would debate with Alistair Darling, head of the Better Together campaign, only after Mr Cameron agreed to do the same.

As the Scottish independence vote continues to collapse expect to see the failed SNP leadership of Salmond and Sturgeon becoming desperate to get anyone into a tv studio.

During the question and answer session a secondary school student suggested that Salmond might himself be having a negative effect on the Yes campaign as some people, he said, "can't stand him".

Was that a reference to the whole of Scotland or the people who turned to voice their disapproval of him as he went fishing, using a kid as a human shield as protestors held up posters stating ‘Lousy Salmond’ with his picture?

The students added:

"With all due respect, do you think the Yes campaign might do better if you weren't so strongly associated with it, and have you managed to put across that a vote for independence is not a vote for the SNP and Alex Salmond?"

This referendum is about one man, Alex Salmond, and his poisonous vision, the quickest way to end him is to vote against independence as he would turn Scotland into a hellhole.

Then he would walk away with his multiple pensions.

Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond is on the slippery slope downwards to an epic defeat, he can’t fight destiny, and when the day of reckoning comes for him, Sturgeon and their nasty vile clique, they will be getting what has been long overdue.
