Further to the NO result of the Scottish referendum on independence, Alex Salmond has stated that he will step down as First Minister as well as resign as leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party. (Sources: BBC News video and The Telegraph report.)
That he’s chosen not to continue in office to implement political changes Whitehall has promised to the half of Scotland wanting independence is most intriguing, especially in the light of his long-held antagonism toward Israel and any possible Islamist leanings (blog refers). One would reasonably believe he hasn’t been blessed but cursed, in line with the Almighty’s promise to Abram!
