Oh well,
As Granite City inmates they could not be more miserable anyway.;)
Whaaaat!!! Aberdeen in partial lockdown??? The message from Sean Clerkin and his Braveheart chums in the Scottish Resistance last week was "Keep Scotland Covid Free(!!)" by keeping the "Inglish basturts Oot". Will we see him and his numbchuck buddies protesting as trains of Aberdonians arrive at Queen Street?? Nope, thought not....

The whole article is interesting and the fact it's written by a prominant Yes voter makes it even more interesting. If McAlpine is writing this kind of stuff then some of it is almost certainly true.
Is he one of Salmonds men?

I don't know where he stands with Salmond these days. He's certainly not a fan of Sturgeon. I wonder how many will split off to the new party Alliance for Independence.

Oh look.

McAlpine wants Independence not dictatorship.
 
As he said himself, almost anything is preferable to the current state of affairs that Sturgeon's SNP has brought to bear on the country.

The Sturgeon administration, is already acting independent in all but name and pushes its authority to the full extent of the law. The downside for her wielding so much power, is she has made it quite clear to everyone that also every error in scotland, is now owned by the SNP and nobody else.

Yes and no. Unfortunately it isn't clear to everyone, particularly Scottish media. The castle of sand has yet to crumble but there are more and more grains breaking free.

As McAlpine says in his article. the Scottish media are letting Sturgeon get away with it. It is understandable (though not acceptable) that the SNP members are not criticising their dear leader, but I cannot understand the Scottish press letting her have free reign.
