The irony within that "sentence" most probably escapes you. laugh.gif

It's no wonder the woman is astonished. After listening to Shrek and Co we are all astonished! yes.gif

Only the ones who either don't understand the issues or refuse to answer the questions are astonished.

The scared of doing things for themselves down to a tee then.

I don`t believe he said anything about "overnight", Carmella. Yes, we will make mistakes at the outset. And learn from them. Unlike our current powers-that-be who "cater" for our needs. At least, this way, we will be close to our new politico overlords. They won`t be way down the other side of the country. And that, I guarantee, will ensure that they think twice before trying it on.

Note "our new politico overlords". New faces. Not old re-invented clapped-out old Unionist hangers-on desperate to cling to something because they know there`s no place for them down south.

Like Nicola Sturgeon who took part in a live TV debate and proceeded to screech and wail like a moronic stair-heid ned from start to finish?

Like Joan McAlpine who used Holyrood expenses to pay for a holiday for her married boyfriend, his cuckolded wife and their kids, then tried to cover up the fact and even tried to use the threat of legal action to shut the wife up?

Like Kenny MacAskill who is making a pig's ear of the country's justice system in general and the Abdelbaset al-Megrahi case and the SNP's very own cack-handed anti-sectarianism legislation in particular?

Or even old Shrek Salmond himself who ignores all dissenting comment and maintains that he alone is right - because he said so?

Yeah, bring on the new faces I must say....
Geeza brek! laugh.gif

I believe I`ve made perfectly clear on several occasions I consider Salmond and the SNP to be part of our problems. Why? Well, as I`ve also pointed out, they`ve ran alongside the Unionist parties for so long, they`ve become a mere reaction to them and, on so doing, have lost their own identity.

Likewise, you keep implying that a vote for independence is a vote for the SNP to then automatically govern the country henceforth and in perpetuity. Cobblers. As anyone who can be bothered thinking realises, the SNP will continue after a yes vote. But, come March 2016, the first truly free Scottish elections, the SNP will have to enter the fray alongside any and all parties on our political landscape.

Among those will be new parties, the SNP and, of course, all the "old re-invented clapped-out Unionist hangers-on desperate to cling to something because they know there`s no place for them down south".

Sorry, but we can't have discussions running off-topic and onto purely referendum issues. This one is about Billy Connolly. In the news today ... he's bowed out of the independence debate, but he is stepping forward as a budding artist with an exhibition in Glasgow starting this week:

Billy Connolly Exhibition | Castle Galleries, Glasgow
15/03/14 - 30/03/14 More info here.

Well if it looks like crap, smells like crap, it usually is crap wink.gif

What is it with 'celebs', once they get a bit of cash and public recognition they think they can become an 'arteest'.. Back in school that ones who drew like that failed the art exam, there's nothing wrong with not being able to draw, i'm sure Michelangelo was probably as funny as a heart attack but i dont recall reading about him ever 'finding himself' and headlining at the comedy club circuit back in the dark ages wink.gif
