Alex Salmond is Extraordinary

I'm on my way home from London and what do I find on reading the Scotsman that I bought at King's Cross station? The ordinary has become extraordinary and our first minister has stared death in the face!

Alex Salmond was on a Boeing 777 that was coming into land at Dubai airport when the aircraft had to abandon its landing because another aircraft was still on the runway. The FM's plane was in no danger, despite the Scotsman telling us of how “the drama unfolded”, and after doing a short circuit of the airport it landed with no one injured or barely perturbed. This of course is something that happens several times a day, at least, somewhere in the world. A spokeswoman for the Scottish Liberal Democrats was quick to comment.

"While I'm sure that everyone is breathing a sigh of relief that the First Minister is OK, let's remember ordinary people face situations like this every day."

Isn't it comforting to know that the Lib Dems think Alex Salmond is extraordinary.

Isn't it extraordinary how the LibDems think they have to comment on it thus revealing how distrurbed their moral compass is.
