Yesterday the Scottish people served up a feast of Filleted Salmond. The smiling Cheshire cat has had the smile wiped off his face. We can now all heave a huge sigh of relief. The markets have responded positively, jobs north of the border are secure, our nuclear subs can continue to use Scottish lochs, whisky will not, after all, be priced in euros and, as a bonus, Scottish MP will be banned from voting on purely English matters. Quite right too.
Of course the SNP will continue to bang on about separatism, the joy of the kilt and ‘their’ oil but with such a decisive defeat little Alex Salmond has far less authority than he had two days ago.
We are going out for dinner this evening to celebrate and have invented a cocktail to mark the event. It’s called a Jock on the Rocks…in memory of the defeated SNP leader. It comprises a shot of whisky, a measure of lies, a generous helping of deceit, loads of bitters and plenty of chilling ice. Cheers.
