Smoked Salmond: First Minister Quits

eck-goes

“I believe that in this new exciting situation, redolent with possibility, Party, Parliament and country would benefit from new leadership. Therefore I have told the National Secretary of the SNP that I will not accept nomination to be a candidate for leader at the Annual Conference. After the membership ballot I will stand down as First Minister to allow the new leader to be elected by due Parliamentary process.”

Bye ‘Eck!

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
