It seems that Pope Francis is taking the well travelled route of World Leaders and calling on Scotland to remain part of the UK.
The Pope is the latest in a long line of senior World leaders to say ‘No thanks’ to Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon.
He has came off the fence and effectively entered the Scottish independence debate as a Better Together supporter, by default, but Scotland’s Catholic community will no doubt heed his words and guarded warning about national division.
The Pope gave a press interview to a Barcelona newspaper regarding the situation re Catalonia's conflict with Spain.
And Scotland was then brought; previously Alex Salmond had attempted to get an audience with the Pope.
This was quite firmly rebuffed by the Catholic Church.
Now, Scotland’s Catholic community faces a choice do they side with the Pope or Alex Salmond.
Also to declare as a supporter of the UK is Hilary Clinton, she also is saying ‘No thanks’ to Alex Salmond and unpopular Nicola Sturgeon.
The former US secretary of state said she believes a yes vote would be a "loss for both sides" and she is hoping that it does not happen.
So, whether you are just an ordinary person like Clare Lally or you are a World leader such as the Pope or President Obama, the answer to Alex Salmond is ‘No thanks’.
Interesting that the Pope has come off the fence but as he and the Catholic Church already know, Alex Salmond is morally bankrupt.
