Scotch that

Mr Salmond said this weekend "Why on earth do we allow this incompetent bunch of Lord Snooties to be in positions of authority over our country? Westminster would put this first class nation in the second class carriages. No more second best for Scotland. It is time, it is past time, for a fresh start for our nation."

All fine and bullish except who does he think has been running the UK since 1997.  The current PM is clearly of Scottish descent, going on his name, so are Liam Fox and Michael Gove, as is Lord Strathclyde, the leader in the HoL and Danny Alexander.  I make that 20% of the cabinet coming from less than 10% of the population.

And under the last lot it was even worse with Blair, Brown, Darling, D. Alexander, Reid, Falconer, Irvine, Cook, Robertson, Dewar and probably many more but I really can't be bothered. So who does Salmond think has been messing up the UK for the last 15 years?

Nice one, it connects with my post on Sunday,"The Working Class Can Let Me Pass" which has a final comment about Salmond of RBS that you might like. I recall Macmillan, Mcleod and Maxwell-Fyfe once upon a time. The Macmillan's came from the other side of the island to some of my lot.
