Trouble is, what happens when Sturgeon goes? Chances are it'll be someone on the Braveheart side of the party to mobilise the extremists who are just waiting to follow whoever promises 'Independence now!', but going by the content of The Destroyers above, they'll need to have very deep pockets indeed because, as it makes clear, these campaigns don't fund themselves.
Lardboy possibly, or Cherry, of whom I don't know much, or Salmond riding (pun not intended) on the crest of a wave?
The problem with Cherry and Blackford is that they are MPs and the SNP needs its leader to be in Holyrood.
Salmond is not a shoe in to get elected, he lost his last seat, plus despite the fact that he was not found guilty, he had to admit to be a serial womanizer.
