Alex Salmond Slams Economist Magazine

The Scottish National Party leader said the front cover displays a sort of "Bullingdon Club humour" of "sneering condescensions".
"It just insults every single community in Scotland," he told Radio Clyde.
"This is how they really regard Scotland. This is Unionism boiled down to its essence and stuck on a front page for every community in Scotland to see their sneering condescensions.
"They shall rue the day they thought they'd have a joke at Scotland's expense."
Salmond added: "This doesn't represent England. Goodness' sake, I wouldn't insult the people of England the way the Economist believes it should insult the communities of Scotland.
"This is a particular strata of London society. It's not a very attractive strata. They're not even funny, let's face it. If it was a decent joke we'd have a laugh at it. This is just plain insults."

Faking It

"We as a party have to be seen to be fighting to keep the Union together. Even if we don’t agree with it, because at the end of it all, if the Scots say we’re out of here and they want to go independent, we can turn around and say it’s not what we wanted, it’s not what we campaigned for, you can’t have this, you can’t have that, and you can get on with it."
