This is the tories trying to sabotage Nicolas support. They are scared that we will get independence. I'm not surprised he has sold his soul to them. It's all a game.

I can't be arsed with Salmond. But if he takes lists seats from the Tories then whatever. Only 9% needed from Glasgow for Alba, to oust that scumbag Tory Annie Wells. I expect Alba to target these list seats that the Tories weasel their way into.
SNP 1/2 won't work everywhere. Please research, for what it would take in your constituency, to get pro- independence members in on the list.
It is good people in Scotland are becoming very aware, what their second vote now means. But more information is needed to be explained to the public on how the list works.
We must get rid of as many of these Tory scumbags as possible, that we can all agree on.

The absolute state of Scottish nationalism. All about being even more neo liberal and gay than Westminster.

Whoever decided on the comedy shaky cam needs a slap, typical english broadcasting corporation nonsense.

He smells the chance of indpendence and wants back in the limelight, he's an addict of the prestige the position of MP can give. He's turning into the farage of scotland, quits politics then turn back up like a bad smell. May have got into politics for the right reasons but as soon as he got a taste of the power it was all about stroking his bloated ego.

If he wanted to secure independence he'd stay retired as it was down to his ego that a lot of folk voted no the last time around. Only reason he's set up this party is to get back in the media and the english will love it because they think they'll be able to manipulate scots the way they did to the english over brexit.

Will voting for Alex Salmond stop Vladimir Putin sending Russian military aircraft into Scotland's airspace? Probably not.

In other news does a successful Scottish leader need to be named after a fish to get elected?

This is on a similar level to drumpf creating an alternative to the GOP in the states. It will take votes from the snp.

Not sure how he thinks this will aid the drive for a second referendum

Why can't anyone, including Salmond, pronounce "Alba" correctly?

There's an extra A in the middle, think "Al-a-ba"

Salmond will subvert and destroy the very thing he still says he is trying to protect and realize (i.e. Scottish 'Independence'), by pursuing his own egotistical agenda.
Speaking personally as a guy who does not and never has believed in the SNP cause and has always voted against it, I find Salmond's attitude now to be astonishing, shameful and absurd, given his own personal track record in all of this. How could any genuine SNP supporter even think of voting for this man?

People could be reminded that it was the SNP and Liberal Democrats were responsible for the early general election in December 2019 that led to a landslide general election victory of Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party.

The SNP in particular pushed Labour to call an early general election to avoid the then impending legal action around Alex Salmond and the SNP.

Without the SNP and Liberal Democrats calling an early general election the Labour Party could have delayed the general election meaning a Labour Government and avoidance of No Deal Brexit and avoidance of the chaos of Brexit.
