Cant stand the man as he's a politician but your post is more of an embarrassment than a scot waving a saltire to celebrate a scot at a sporting event!

With few exceptions, the only people that will see that as political are Better Together hacks.

To most people it'll be seen as a Scottish First Minster waving a Scottish flag when a Scottish athlete has won.

Tell you what, he has a cheek trying to nanny state the nation into being healthier when he is in that nick.

He is so parochial and small time. There is being proud of being Scottish and then there is cutting about in tartan trousers eating shortbread and singing Caledonia everywhere you go :vrface:

To be fair to him, the majority of his campaign next year is going to be photos of him shaking hands with Andy Murray/Chris Hoy/Sean Connery/any other Scot in the news, so he might as well make the most of these opportunities.

Uruguay's President is 78, never wears a tie, donates 90% of his salary to charity, lives on a farm, and above all, softly spoken, passive and melancholy. That makes him the perfect representative of this country, above all in his understatement and sad disposition. He is Uruguay.

Alex Salmond is fat, feisty, provocative, but well meaning. Especially in his weight, but also in his personality, he's the ideal representative of his country. He is Scotland.

Murray's the exception here; not the norm. And Salmond still puts every other politician in the UK in his sizeable pocket, like it or not.

Maybe in the Holyrood but certainly not on the bigger stage. Salmond is loud, laughs and sneers at his opponents. He is a talented politician but a marmite figure which is exactly what you do not want as a leader. Especially a leader who is trying to convince the majority of the nation to vote for something that the majority do not and have never wanted.

But then I realised that if they get their way in 2014, I'll no longer be Scottish so I have no interest other than pity.
