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 ...

Delving deeper into the BBC’s idea of impartiality | Letters
Readers respond to Nick Robinson’s recent Guardian article about the mainstream media winning back trustNick Robinson’s article asserting that Nigel Lawson should be corrected but not silenced by the BBC on climate change (Silencing the disagreeable won’t work. Put them on air, 28 September) suggests that he and his colleagues are still ignoring the potential harm caused by the broadcast of misinformation to their audiences. Lord Lawson has a track record of misleading the public about climate change. His lobby group, the Global Warming Policy Foundation, was found in 2014 to have breached Charity Commission rules by promoting climate change denial. In the same year, the BBC upheld a complaint after Lord Lawson made inaccurate and misleading claims about climate change on the Today programme on Radio 4.The BBC is now considering a complaint from me and others about further false claims by Lord Lawson on Today in August. In particular, the BBC needs to recognise that his erroneous

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.

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.
