Alex Salmond enters summer recess with rivals still on ...

... defensive And so we ended much as we began. This session of the Scottish Parliament went out with a rampant SNP, a worthy but dull Labour leadership, a gallant but failed Tory intervention and a clip round the ear for the Liberal Democrats.Quite how Alex Salmond has managed to stay so completely on top when all around him his policies are crumbling and his minority status prevents him from moving even the most mildly contentious legislation, may say more about our political climate than it does about the man himself.Yesterday was a perfect illustration of the state in which Scottish ...

Salmond uses Burns in Obama offensive

Published Date: 18 January 2009 ALEX SALMOND is attempting to form his own special relationship. The First Minister is trying to schmooze Barack Obama by inviting him to a glitzy Burns Supper in Washington, even suggesting that the President-elect shares some of the qualities of Scotland's national poet. The First Minister is hopeful that the world's most powerful man will acknowledge his Scottish ancestry by sharing haggis, neeps and tatties with him during the events marking the 250th anniversary of Robert Burns's birth. Salmond has yet to receive a reply from Obama, but he wants to ...

Fringe views – why politics is yuge at Edinburgh this year
It was once almost a taboo at the festival, but just about every performer this year, from the SNP’s Alex Salmond to an Irish wizard creating a kids’ utopia, wants to talk politics. But when the real world is so extreme, is it all beyond a joke? You can’t move for politics in Edinburgh. Whether it’s a practical guide to democracy for kids, or a big-name politician with more time on his hands than he would have wished for, politics is everywhere.And in Scotland you don’t get much bigger than the Scottish National party’s Alex Salmond, former first minister of the Scottish parliament and, until three months ago, MP for Gordon.

Alex Salmond ... Unleashed review – Edinburgh show is all bark and no bite
Assembly Rooms, EdinburghThe former first minister of Scotland and ex-MP promises a political kiss and tell, but while a convivial host, fails to deliver the goodsWhen the former first minister of Scotland and now ex-MP Alex Salmond announced this last-minute fringe run, it sold out faster than you can say “independence in Europe”. Perhaps punters were seduced by the promise of (as the title runs) “Alex Salmond ... Unleashed”. He’s been promising to kiss and tell, hinting on the Today programme at a story involving – of all things – sado-masochism and Kirsty Wark. Sure enough, the show begins (after a rousing reception from the crowd) with Salmond theatrically removing his tie. He’s buttoned up no more, and we buckle up for juicy gossip from behind the scenes of Scottish and UK politics.But that’s not what we get. Instead, Unleashed is an hour of music, clubbable chat with a special guest, and some reflections on Scotland’s historical ties to Europe. (Each show will
Salmond and Sturgeon’s solo acts are no joke | Kevin McKenna
One should be told he’s not a comedian, the other needs a sense of humourIt’s surely understandable when political leaders, on beginning their ascent to high office, begin also to edge further away from reality. Little by little, their inner sanctum becomes more exclusive and comprises those whose entire careers and, therefore, livelihoods depend on keeping their leader happy and on course for the ultimate accolade.As each week passes, the Chosen One begins to exhibit traces of paranoia as he wonders who could have been responsible for leaking the details that led to that unedifying splash on today’s front pages. When it seems the entire country seems only to want to bring you down, having spent years building you up, it’s an entirely human response to seek the society of those who think you’re just the cat’s whiskers.

Instead of strengthening Scottish politics, Alex Salmond plays the funny man | Gerry Hassan
The SNP and the independence movement both need major reappraisals in these unsure times. But is their former leader becoming a problem?Alex Salmond is one of the big beasts not just of Scottish, but British politics, and the defining figure of modern Scottish nationalism and the SNP. He has been leader of the SNP for a total of 20 years (between 1990-2000 and 2004-2014), first minister of Scotland for seven years, and in 2014 took the SNP closer than any of its opponents thought possible to the party’s ultimate goal of independence.Yet he now finds himself bereft of a major public role, after losing the referendum and standing down as first minister, and subsequently losing his Westminster Gordon seat to Tory Colin Clark.
