SNP treasurer under pressure to go from SNP executive

Ian Blackford, SNP party treasurer and outspoken proponent of immediate Scottish independence is under pressure to leave from the SNP leader Alex Salmon and SNP deputy, John Swinney.

The reasons laid out by Salmond would have us believe its all about the state of SNP financial affairs , but it is more likely that Mr Salmond intends to keep Scottish independence on the back burner until he has the authority in Scotland to hammer it home to London.

Ian Blackfords opinions about the 'Union' are well known and many SNP supporters agree that a harder line needs to be taken against Westminsters continued domination of the Scots.

We'll have to wait and see what revelation strikes Blackford after his weekend in the Scottish outback!
