By Alex Salmond (*) - I do not know if Artur Mas, the president of Catalonia, deliberately chose the eclipse of the super-moon as the day on which to hold the most important election in Catalonia’s democratic history. Read full article

    @ 3 No vestige of a brain

    You do realise that a future in Scottish politics is open to you with that sort of humour, don't you?


    Old Salmon Face is sure glad they fucked the referendum up given the price of oil.

    (*) Alex Salmond is a Scottish politician who served as the fourth First Minister of Scotland from 2007 to 2014. He is currently a member of both the Scottish and United Kingdom parliaments Politically, Salmond is one of the foremost proponents of Scottish independence.

    He's also one of the biggest prats around. Tens of thousands of scotch migrant worthless scroungers believed Scotland's Future. Lies from beginning to end.

    And hundreds of thousands of deluded English prats think that Tory/Eton boys will save their country. Wait til' the next Bank crash....coming to a city next to you soon.

    By the way for English ignoramuses, in Celtic mythology the salmon is associated with wisdom so you are complementing him with what you think are insults.

    It appears that hate is the thing that keeps you and C. happy. What went wrong in your lives to make you so bitter ?

    Clyde. Firstly very pleased to see you back as I always read your comments on these threads. So please don't get your knickers in a twist again over Scotnats and leave. I think we all know your opinions on that subject!

    I wonder if the Catalonians will have the collective courage to go it alone, unlike our friends in the north, all big gobs and no action unfortunately, Salmond having the biggest.

    alex salmond is a true patriot.
    a modern hero, if you want.
    mas, on the other hand, is a traitor, the responsible of that policy of friends and foes, traidores y leales.
    the worst of the worst

    now, we cannot compare catalunya, which is an integral part of spain and cannot be independent in any way, not even by their constitution, with scotland.
    scotland will be independent sooner than later.
    getting rid of that joke of united kingdom will be the best for them.

    I would hate to be Scottish. Apparently a generation lasts for no more than two years!

    It's not Scotsnats.....they are fair game as are any other political grouping.
    However, the comments made by certain posters are distinctly anti-Scottish, verging on hate and are NOT confined to the political spectrum.

    I have no dislike for the English , or any other nationality come to that - even Argentinians as a people.

    Anyway, don't take the exit of your Rugby team too much to heart, there's always your football team to console you.

    @15 I agree the xenophobia displayed first by the cybernats and then the English reactions of others of that ilk were deplorable.Lastyear I felt distinctly uncomfortable in a shop in Bonnyrigg when sotto voce remarks were passed on hearing my British accent
    As for our amateur Rugby team they never had a hope in that group and if the get atry or two in their final matches I think they will come home to Montevideo fairly happy.

    Old Salmon Face (an English description) is at it again:

    And this twat was supposed to be a Leader of the Scots!

    Whata mistake to maka!

    I just love some of the comments.

    I wonder if The Hag will turn up as St. Teresa?

    @ 18 Clyde15
    “Who is the HAG ?”

    The Sturgeon as I call her. The Hag was a nick I saw on one of the pro-staying with the UK sites during the referendum.
