Alex Salmond appeals for extra Scottish funding

Only a couple of days ago Alex Salmond suggested that the Scottish economy would not suffer like those around the world, that the economy was stronger and had been well managed by....well, his own party. However, a few days in politics is a long time as Alex Salmond cynically uses the plight of the Scottish people to try and bump the UK authorities for a extra £1 billion in funding. But are these funds there and available for Scotland?

Yet again we have a political case of smoke and mirrors with Alex Salmond talking the talk in Scotland knowing full well that his UK counter-parts have given up listening to his Nationalistic ramblings and name calling. He claims to be a politician who fights for Scotland, who fights for the good of the Scottish people when he is really looking for independence.

He has alienated so many of his UK Parliamentary colleagues that he is seen as nothing but a pest South of the border while all in Scotland see him as the big statesman. Unless Alex Salmond stops his constant whinging and scare mongering he could actually take Scotland back 50 years while the rest of the UK moves ahead in the medium to longer term.
