THERE'S ALWAYS AN ELEVENTH HOUR...

Looking back over the past weeks and gathering my thoughts about the referendum campaign, I try to marshal some of the feelings, reactions and thoughts that have created in me such a profound depression.

I guess the second “debate” was the principal catalyst for depression.

Oh, what a fifth rate war we had - two shouty men - and an audience with a cumulative IQ of 90. That really summed up everything for me. 

Who won? Who cares?

On second thoughts, perhaps those of us who still are capable of impartial thought could salvage something from the aftermath of this public train wreck.

How to become a snake oil salesman...

As the debate over Scottish Separation grows ever more disconnected from the truth, there is one injustice which continues to make a mockery of the referendum - the disenfranchisement of Scots born North of the Border who now work and live, however temporarily, elsewhere and who Salmond is clearly frightened are more likely to vote for the Union.

Is it fair to give the vote in this important debate to foreigners who have only been here a few years, while denying one to natural born Scots?

For me, it merely confirms the change in Alex Salmond’s position from competent First Minister of Scotland to snake oil salesman who has no interest in an honest outcome.
