  1. Thank you, Peter. Calm and measured response to every question. If only the MSM would do us the respect of managing a rational discussion about these and other critical issues.



    1. My feelings too, Tony.

      A load a repetitive nonsense being talked by media and individuals about lack of facts, lack of clarity. There are more facts and greater clarity than there's ever been in any UK general election.



  2. Thanks for this.

    Salmond is a statesman with both integrity and purpose.

    Instead of recognising these qualities whether or not they share Salmond's beliefs and commitments, they choose to toxify the waters with vacuous innuendo.

    Ya-boo politics is a poor substitute for reasoned debate.
