Never one to miss a trick in public, as well as working things below the radar, Alex Salmond certainly looked and sounded smug this morning. He has been quick out of the blocks to defend the Sunday Herald’s actions. On the Today program he said any “inglish” attempt to go after the paper would be “extremely foolish”. “It looks to me like English law and English injunctions are increasingly impractical in the modern world” He went on to mock the idea that English law “should pertain across the planet”.
Ryan Giggs should demand a refund after someone at Schillings, supposedly market leaders, forgot to file the papers in a Scottish court as well. The blunder has certainly done wonders for the SNP cause. The Sunday Herald, known for their close links to the party, have given the First Minister a gift this morning. The road to freedom is going to be one of small steps, and the English courts making Scotland seem like the badlands could certainly be considered one. Guido can’t help but wonder, was there any communication between the paper and the First Minister’s people before that front page went to print?
