Desperate talk

Have your say

Alex Salmond compared his referendum to post-apartheid elections in South Africa and the Scots to subjugated blacks. Then former SNP deputy leader Jim Sillars threatened a “day of reckoning” for firms warning of the dangers of breaking up the UK.

He asked, “What kind of people do these companies think we are?” Well, who can say, but I think the mask covering the faces of the desperados leading this leap in the dark just slipped.
