  1. If Mr Salmond were to offer real independence for Scotland i.e. freedom from London AND Brusssels then there might be a case to be made. Unfortunately, these non-nationalists who support huge 3rd-world immigration into a country of 5 million would bring about the end of the very people and country which they claim to support.

  2. “these non-nationalists who support huge 3rd-world immigration into a country of 5 million would bring about the end of the very people and country which they claim to support.”

    And then, end up in Brussels, earning an absolute fortune 😉

  3. Humour by-pass?

    Like unionists are just tickleed pink when their political views are maligned.

    That is a laugh. 🙂

  4. You can always rely on The Economist to back the British Establishment when the chips are down. The magazine opposed the provision of aid to the Irish during the Great Famine.

    If that doesn’t convince you it also supports action on Global Warming, the war in Afghanistan and British membership of the EU. I don’t remember any of those covers showing up here.

  5. ‘Skintland’ reminds me of an old Billy Connoly joke, about two Scotsmen, fighting over a Two pence piece, and that’s how copper wire was invented 🙂

  6. Its a great cover

    The Haggis munchers need to find something genuine to get excited about

  7. Alex Salmond proves that Nationalism leads to humour by-pass.

    So much for ‘Braveheart’ then? I Knew those ‘Cetlic Tigers’ were a myth?

    But, then again, I knew that, after all I am an Englishman.

  8. Nice humour from The Economist. And its point is well made.

    I don’t think that Salmond can win a referendum on independence, whenever he calls it. The other three parties are strongly opposed and will get their vote out on the day.
