SNP wears white rose to defy Scotlands subservience
Alex Salmond, the SNP leader, instructed his party members to sport the
white rose, linked to the Jacobite rebellions of the 1700's against
English domination of Scotland.
Mr Salmond pushed the dagger in deeper by ditching a dinner held by
London lover John Reid (Scottish secretary) and watching Sean Connery' new
film at an opening night instead.!
Good on you Mr Salmond!
