funkyplaid: I saw a picture of that misbegotten tosser Alex Salmond on the BBC headline the other day. That doughy, gap-toothed geezer with his self-important smile, like a retarded child who’s just wet himself. I can’t stand that guy.
lordhermiston: Darren, have you ever had a Scotch Pie?
funkyplaid: Like a meat pie?
lordhermiston: Yes. With the loaf of hardened beef in the center.
funkyplaid: Sure. Remember they brought out a heaping platter-full at the Illicit Still when Scotland beat France in the Champion’s League?
lordhermiston: Oh, of course! How could I forget that glorious day?
funkyplaid: So, meat pies. What about them?
lordhermiston: (matter-of-factly) Alex Salmond looks like one.
funkyplaid: *literally falls out of chair*
It had to have been the delivery, because it’s just not the same written down. This, on the other hand, makes me pucker with concern. ‘Ruling’ anything sounds like a monarchy to me. Thumbs up, Alex. Watch where you put it. Sometimes I don’t want to be a sober-minded, even-keeled professional.

after reading a number of articles in various publications about a separate scotland i think it a bad plan.
i also flinch at the use of the word "ruling" in that headline. wtf are they thinking?

Always count on the Beeb to take us out for a spin.

I suppose there is a similarity. Beneath their toxic exterior, both are full of shit?

Precisely. And negative nutritional value!

But Chancellor Gordon Brown said the SNP's policies were not properly thought out.
(Pie or not, I'm still voting for the swine come May).

Hehe. I know this, and I greatly respect it. And I sincerely hope you don't mind that I posted this. I swear it was the funniest moment of my week – you saw the result!

Here's some comments from the literary populist republican contingent. <a href="http://kevinwilliamson.blogspot.com/2007/03/mar-11th-are-snp-preparing-to-betray.html” target=”_blank”>http://kevinwilliamson.blogspot.com/2007/03/mar-11th-are-snp-preparing-to-betray.html
My brother used to call the Nats Tartan Tories back in 1979. Another friend would often say, " a smaller hoose is easier to manage." Aye, but you still have to live in a street.
Remember once you open those pies they become greasy and slimy. Successful politicians are never an admirable lot. Its their nature to be …creepy.

This looks like a scary reunion of the Bay City Rollers.
An interesting link you've sent, but I just can't buy that they'd ever consider ditching that referendum. I mean, it's really all they have, and it's what Alec keeps going onandonandonandonandonandon about. Not that the alternatives are many and varied, but would they even be contenders if there were no chance of going solo?

Note David Cameron Conservative leader second back left.
Also Boris Johnson of the Spectator (sitting blonde)

And here I thought I was perhaps being too harsh. 🙂

Thumbs up, Alex. Watch where you put it.
I don't know why this makes me think of that scene from the American Pie . But I hope it's lodged a nice visual in your head too. You're welcome.
As for "Ruling": it's a bad choice of words from a PR perspective, but if we're honest it's what politics and heads of state are about, isn't it?
March 21st, 2007 at 8:53 am
It is. But do we have to be so blatant about it? Can't we just *pretend* that politicians actually have the needs of the people at heart?

Here's a little snap I took in Oban. Perhaps it could be the new SNP slogan.

I thought that would amuse you 🙂
