Scotland’s own Little Napoleon Hung Out To Dry

Looks like the answer to yesterday’s phone a friend is (b), Wendy Alexander stormed right ahead with ‘the greatest idea since not declaring the donations to her leadership campaign.’ Alan Cochrane of The Telegraph puts the boot in with more barbs than a fishing rod:

Everything she does is right. Nothing she does is wrong. And everyone must accept her at her own overblown estimation of her own worth. Even, it seems, the Prime Minister. She did not consult Gordon Brown or even her Cabinet minister brother Douglas before announcing at the weekend that she now wanted a referendum on independence. Instead, she insisted that this was a decision for her, and her Holyrood party, alone.

And in what was seen as an act of barefaced treachery, she declared that such a vote had to be held before the next general election, which she told anyone who’d listen that Mr Brown, her friend and mentor, was certain to lose.

Alexander is at the despatch box today in First Minister’s Questions. I wonder just how delicate Alex Salmond will be?
