Alex Salmond should not be confused with Scotland, he is the first minister. He does not speak for everyone in Scotland.
If the agreement with the treasury is that we go back to using our pound, so be it.
Alex Salmond loves to antagonise Westminister, and you have to take what he says with a knowledge of the man.
The arrogance of England, however, is to assume that it is their pound and not a shared currency.
This is the point which Alex Salmond is provoking.
So the independence vote is reduced to antagonizing, winding up and provoking?
No its not, its Salmond talking absolute bollocks and being an arse as usual - and like it or not that is the image the rest of the world are getting of Scotland.
The man is doing an excellent job of alienating Scotland.
What else would you call the persistent demands to have a 'head to head' with Cameron? It's not to sort out the finer points of an independent Scotland.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, it is my opinion that if we lose the Yes vote the blame can be put squarely on Salmond's shoulders.
I don't like how he's carrying out the campaign one little bit,....
..... and it is embarrassing at times.
...... and the media sensationalising the stupider points is hugely detrimental to the amount of work that many, many others have done to evaluate the pros and cons of independence.
