Playing the man again eh?

Do you know any other way of having a discussion?

Playing the man again - absolute jibberish, from the self declared "Smartest man on the Forum" very disappointing. :1eye

Nice to see you & Sue forming a tag-team, I'm struggling to thing of a more suitable pairing --neither of you have mustered a relevant argument today! :lol:

Good. And with a bit of luck we'll have heard the end of that sleazy bastard Salmond and all those who supported him.

Nicola Sturgeon has been found to have misled the Scottish Parliament around the Alex Salmond affair, Holyrood’s harassment complaints committee has found.

Specifically, it is reported that Ms Sturgeon did offer to intervene in the harassment complaints process, something she repeated denied in both her written and oral evidence.

The Scottish Government’s ministerial code states that a minister who “knowingly” misleads the Scottish Parliament is expected to offer their resignation.

NOT GUILTY

Big smile on Nicola's face so I suppose the vote must've gone her way...

Labour abstained although I'm not sure how the Lib Dems voted - going by the count (65-31) I suspect they must've abstained too.

Yes totally predictable.. The rats jumping ship when things not going to plan.

Whatever you think of the SNP, today they deserve a massive round of congratulations having achieved 97% of electricity generated in the country coming from renewable sources.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-56530424

The target of 100% was one of the most ambitious in the world and apart from a couple of percent, they've achieved what they set out to achieve.

Maybe now the "whit happens when it's no a windae day?" brigade can fade into the background.

It was 97% of the amount used in Scotland, not 97% of electricity generated. A lot more will need to be generated in the future to keep at, or exceed, that level once more electric heating and electric cars appear. Still some achievement, though.

Oh dear, independence..............................:byebye

Former Scottish first minster Alex Salmond is launching a new political party to contest crucial upcoming elections for the parliament in Edinburgh, saying he wants to build a “supermajority” for independence.

Hillarious!

At one time, he was adulated and could do no wrong.

I was at that time castigated for not trusting him!

The very people who rounded on me are now rounding on him!

(Rightly so at last imo)

Still.... It's not as if his "bestie" (her words) learned anything from him!

Only standing candidates on the Regional Lists where the SNP only gained 4 seats last time round, more likely to hurt the Greens.

Doesn't affect me I'll be voting SNP/Green again.

He has a point that tactical voting for a second Independence party could increase the pro-Independence majority at Holyrood but I couldn't stomach voting for a party led by Salmond given what he's done over the last 12 months.

If he had acknowledged his past behaviour had been inappropriate then maybe, if he can't acknowledge (nevermind apologize) because it might leave him open to further legal action then all the more reason for him to stay the hell out of Dodge.

Interesting to see estimates that between 5-7% of the Regional List vote might win the new party seats at Holyrood.

You are correct regarding how he was thought of by many including myself.

I wouldn't vote for or endorse him now for what he admitted to, even if it meant missing out in getting a majority.


As you've inserted Are you saying that Nicola Sturgeon has learned how to act in an inappropriate way to anyone. If you know something then by not acting then you could be putting someone else in danger.
