Dave's Olympic Effort to Avoid Salmond

Brave David Cameron will square up to the nationalist peril from the comfort of the Olympic Park’s velodrome today. He’s got the headlines down south that he wanted – putting himself at the heart of the campaign without actually having to get his hands dirty and go to Scotland. Yet, will frit Dave really be able to get through the next six months running away from Alex Salmond? If he wants to defend the union, he should have the courage of his convictions and be willing to defend it to the hilt. It would be good practice for the 2015 TV debates too. Why so scared?

UPDATE: Pete Wishart of the SNP gives Dave two barrels:

“As an example of political cowardice Cameron gets the gold medal for this Olympic lecture to the Scottish people. As Scotland’s Prime Minister he will run a country mile to avoid a debate with Scotland’s First Minister yet is happy to turn Westminster into a massive resource for the No campaign. The Nos are getting increasingly tetchy as the polls close and no amount of love bombinng or Olympic posturing is going to turn that round now.”

Quote of the Day

President Trump on May’s Brexit deal:

“I would say that Brexit is Brexit. … The people voted to break it up. So I would imagine that’s what they’ll do. But maybe they’ll take a different route, I’m not sure that’s what they voted for.”
