Renowned Scottish windbag and SNP Leader Alex Salmond has called the current United Kingdom a “nonsense” that will cease to exist in 2014 despite opinion polls showing falling support for Scottish separation.
Delivering his welcome address to delegates at the SNP conference in Perth, the First Minister said Scotland is closer now to independence than at any time since the Union with England in 1707. He said the referendum deal he and David Cameron signed earlier this week was a “momentous, historic document” that contained a promise by the UK Government to respect the result of the vote in autumn 2014. Despite opinion polls showing support for separation has fallen to around 30 per cent, he claimed not to be disheartened because the SNP has previously defied the electoral odds to win power and then a majority at the Scottish Parliament.
Yes, dream on, Salmond. The reality is that Scottish people will vote with their WALLETS and that means sticking with the rest of the UK. Scottish separation is as much of a nonsense now as it was in 1707. The idea that Scotland could afford independence is a further nonsense. Like Irish Nationalism, Scottish Nationalism is self deluded.
