So, as predicted, Alex Salmond has delivered a further body blow to what is appearing to be an increasingly inept Brown government. But it’s hardly a surprise is it. After all Alex was crawling all over Glasgow East on a regular basis wooing the electorate whilst Brown just shuffled about apologetically in an unapologetic way.
OK, it’s a protest vote and not likely to be repeated in a general election, but you cannot argue with Salmond and his very able deputies (Swinney in a role he is far better suited to than leading the party) and Nicola Sturgeon, an articulate and likeable deputy to Salmond.
At this rate he could actually convince the country to vote for independence.

Labour call an unnecessarily quick by-election for one of the safest seats in the UK.
They can’t find a candidate.
They don’t have a leader. In Scotland.
They don’t have a leader. Overall. Well, not really.
Doesn’t look good, does it?
Even Annabel Goldie was smiling…
