Where we are and where we will be

Where we are and where we will be
The idea of Edinburgh is a combination of place, soul and symbolic leadership of a nation

Its a question of bottle...

Just how brave is Alex Salmond?

Wendy Alexander is spot on when she says she does not fear a referendum on independence. Lets have that referendum, put the independence nonsense to bed and then we can focus on exposing this SNP populist government for what it is, a one trick pony who will say anything to stay in power.

The SNP don't really want a referendum now because they know they will loose. That's why their response to Wendy Alexanders challenge is, er, ok, when we said we want a referendum, we meant not now, but in 2 years times, maybe...

They want lots of fights with Westminster so the debate is about conflict not nationhood. They want to wait until 2010 so have created as many conflicts as possible so the argument is around who said what to whom, not whether we should break up 300 years of partnership with 3 other nations. Yes, Alex, bring it on if you dare.

Great to see your enthusiasm for a full debate on the subject.

Any ideas why Gordon Brown doesn't share in it?

I guess he has other things on his mind! It dos show that Wendy is her own woman, not that she ever wasn't but this is the proof for the doubters.

thanks for your comment
