In the article, they've also used a rather amusing picture:
The result, of course, has been SNP outrage and cybernat pandemonium.
Here a few choice words in response:
This applies to the SNP leadership as well as the cybernats, of course. It just goes to show what some of us have always thought: that the one reflects the other, the grassroots fanatics are actually like the leadership and vice-versa.
It also exposed the nasty, bullying side of Kim Sal Mond as well. What exactly did he mean by promising the Economist that it would "rue the day"? Would it be banned in an "independent" Scotland? That happens to the Economist quite a lot, actually, in places like Zimbabwe, China and even Singapore. Does His Immensity not believe in a free press?
The articles are both good, balanced and correct, of course. One of the little facts which has somehow escaped the CyberNattosphere is that they were probably written by one Peter Jones - otherwise known as Mr. Rhona Brankin.
Good job, Pete.
