Reminds me of those guys in your class at school with too much to say and little to back it up. Simply: “because I said so” ideologies. An idiot with a dangerous amount of power who’s spent too much time watching Braveheart instead of refining his political, economic and general knowledge. He has no idea what he’s actually going to DO with independence. He just WANTS it.
It’s like me with an iPad, why do I want one? Because it will make me look good. Will it be beneficial to my lifestyle, or improve my productivity? I would have to go looking for wifi as I don’t have it at home, and to be honest, it’s just a bigger screen for me to play my silly little games on. BUT I WANT ONE.
So, instead of voting for independence, let’s just all chip in, buy Salmond an iPad and a £10 giftcard for iTunes so he can watch Braveheart on his train back to Strichen.
