Really, the SNP running with "well, we've had legal advice on x, y and z, and everything's peachy, but, no, we're not going to show you" is despicable.
... Except that now, apparently, they never did get legal advice at all - despite telling everyone they did and
going to great legal lengths (at great public expense) to prevent the publication of this non-existent
advice, resisting the Scottish Information Commission, not to mention his own Deputy's repeated refusal to publish this advice during BBC Question Time
only last week....? :impales face into palm:
I mean seriously, you just couldn't make this shit up, right? I always thought that Salmond was a slippery customer, but, even to be "slippery" demands skill.
Unfortunately for him, though, it looks as though that's something he manifestly does not possess? What an utter belmtard.
For me though, if he's seriously claiming not
to have bothered to seek legal advice even now - that is actually much worse than "merely" telling embarrassing, pants-on-fire porkie pies, in many ways? Just how half-arsed can you get? Just when was he proposing to actually find out about an independent Scotland's status within the EU and all that this entails, including the mandatory adoption of the Euro? A day before the Referendum itself? Or perhaps not at all!
Has it not occurred to him that the debate - and the Scottish people in particular - could well do with knowing these most basic, fundamental and important details such as this and it is his
job to tell them, as the chief proponent of Independence, not to mention FM of Scotland? Such contempt for his own electorate!
No, if the wavering Scots Voter was in any doubt before, I should think this unbelievable situation should well have made up his/her mind quite nicely.
Frankly, I haven't laughed so hard over a mere political matter for many years - so thanks Alex. So much egg, so little face. You've veritably made my afternoon.
It's not over yet either, not by a long chalk. No, this is going to be the gaffe that just keeps on giving. QT should hopefully be good tonight, for starters. /settles into armchair, popcorn-in-hand
