Some Tale or a Conversation

The 'national conversation' on Scottish independence as described by Alex Salmond continues with his assertion yesterday that he anticipated Scotland would break away from the United Kingdom in a decade. Now I've always thought, and that's how the dictionary defines conversation, that it was (at least) a two sided affair. Interestingly there's not a lot of people n Scotland who seem to want to join in the conversation, perhaps most people, as the polls indicate, just don't want independence? The SNP are fond of comparing us with Norway where the word for conversation is ‘Samtale’. Maybe we should adopt a new word for the type of conversation that the FM wants - Sometale....

There is something intrinsically annoying about Mr Salmond – even if he keeps quiet.

Mind you he is not the fist politician that would be true of.

As we've been patiently pointing out, Richard but it seems to fall on deaf ears - it is indeed a one sided thing. There will be no UK, only divisions of Europe. 1066 has been done again, only this time without the bloodshed. Yet.

Ah, your Baronship. You may be right, but will Scotland be a division of Europe or a division of a division of Europe?
