Words are a medium that reduces reality to abstraction for transmission to our reason, and in their power to corrode reality inevitably lurks the danger that the words will be corroded too. It might be more appropriate, in fact, to liken their action to excessive stomach fluids that digest and gradually eat away the stomach itself.

He's always been a sleaze....you do know the rest of the SNP membership aren't accused of anything like that, nor is Nicola Sturgeon?

Sturgeon has admitted that she held a secret meeting with Salmond at her home where they discusses her own Scottish government inquiry into sexual harassment allegations against him and has refered herself to an ethics committe after coming under presure from the Scottish Tories and Labour MSPs. If that was Johnson or Corbyn it would be a big talking point during this election. It's barely making any ripples up here.

Her behaviour is pretty typical of any local town council I would suggest, so it is no surprise it is being viewed as such.

So he's always been a sleaze which implies the rest of the SNP knew about it and did nothing while he was First Minister and leader of their party. Thanks for making my point for me my G.

It's one reason why the SNP were so keen on a December election.

I'm still bemused by the cognitive dissonance that condemns the mess the Tories have made of Brexit but thinks Scottish independence would be a breeze.

There's no doubt both are difficult, the difference is one's worth doing the other certainly isn't (for Scotland or the UK).

If the future for Scotland is being in some increasingly "lone wolf" UK without a voice or an independent nation in the EU with a vote (and a veto) then it's a no-brainer. Just a cursory glance around the North Sea and our neighbours shows that being part of a top 10 economy doesn't actually serve much purpose for Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and many regions in England.

...but you didn't make any points whatsoever....you're pointless in fact. All you did was post a link and you then wrote a heading suggesting (not implying) that all SNP members viewed serious sexual assualt as a laughing matter.

Therefore I didn't make any points for you at all "my G"....you didn't have any serious ones to make in the first place......homey.

That Scottish independence is "worth doing" is a matter of opinion. People within Scotland are split on that for good reasons on both sides.

There's plenty of inequality within Scotland as well though, I don;t doubt that some of that can be blamed on Westminster but not all of it.

Simple economics, Steve. How has Denmark managed to catch up and totally outperform Scotland's economy over the past few decades?

Ditto the other Nordic and Benelux countries in terms of economic success, standards of living etc. Hell, even the Rep of Ireland now.

That's despite Scotland having all best overall mix of these countries' advantages (to start with anyway) - natural resources, oil and gas, infrastructure, education, technology, language. And we've made such little use of them we have to get bailed out with central funds from Westminster!??

What am I missing here?

Maybe it's in part because Denmark wasn't being run by an alleged p1ssed-up sex pest.

Well, if he's always been a sleaze and the SNP turned a blind eye for so long what must that make them.
Fair play on him for still going to nightclubs at his age though.

It's worth remembering that Scotland's economy has been hit by the end of coalmining, heavy industry and (to a sizeable extent) shipbuilding in the last four decades, on top of the various crises which have afflicted everybody. That has to be contributory factor to the nation falling behind others.
