Salmond sucks life out of Scottish Christmas

The poor Scots. Things just go from bad to worse for the folk in my homeland. Alex Salmond, first minister of the Scottish Assembly, has sucked the life and joy out of Christmas by commissioning this miserable effort of a secular seasonal greeting card:

Have a very merry Christmas Scotland! I hope your season is not as dour as your first minister would have it be.

And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:9-11

For quotes from great and joyful Scottish ministers search this blog for “Ebenezer Erksine (Stirling) and Horatius Bonar (Kelso).

    Did you hear last week’s News Quiz? I loved Mitch Benn’s song about independence – not for Scotland, just for Alex Salmond.
