Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I wouldn't. Though if he had picked Brüning other people probably would have. He should have either included Merkel  (but then the Germans would have complained), or simply shut up. There's no real need for a German bank to get involved in Scottish politics anyway.

Shut up, you are a foreigner seems to be first and last argument of scottish nationalism.

Or any other nationalism.

Shut up, you are a foreigner banker

Fixed it for you.

Those nasty nationalists, speaking out for the separation of church bank and state like that.

You assume. Salmond is happy enough with businesses interfering as long as they interfere on his side. You have a tendency to see any nationalistic movement through rose-tinted (red-tinted?) glasses.

Did Salmond start posting under the handle 'gk' while I wasn't looking?

Me, I don't really care about Scotland or Salmond, I'd just be happy to see the UK disintegrate. Because Britain is a toxic presence in the European community, almost on par with the crazy Russophobes in the new entrants. And with far less historical baggage to excuse its psychotic behavior.

If Number 10 Downing Street can get cut down a notch, then good riddance to bad rubbish.
