Salmond’s Joan: Remembering War Heroes is “Jingoistic”

With the Scottish referendum back in the news today, it’s worth taking a look at what the SNP have been up to. Alex Salmond’s favourite columnist Joan MacAlpine MSP has written a bizarre piece for the Daily Record, ranting about how Britain is marking the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. Apparently “David Cameron has decreed we hold jingoistic celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the war”, and because the main event is being held in Glasgow Hall it is “a cynical attempt to boost Britishness ahead of the referendum”. Definitely not, you know, about remembering those who lost their lives.

She then goes off on one about “the outburst of hysterical patriotism in 1914 represented the worst of British – arrogance, self-delusion and a desire to dominate on the world stage”. Or as most people see it, helping to free Europe from a German warmonger. Further proof that the worst enemy to freedom for Scotland is the SNP themselves…

Quote of the Day

Sky’s Faisal Islam on the mood in Parliament at the moment:

“It’s a totally febrile atmosphere here. It’s kind of like Game of Thrones meets House of Cards – and if you chuck in the Labour Party – Laurel and Hardy too.”
