    Prof Adam Tonkins is from the future but is in no way related to my Slovene girlfriend Aliesbadas Tomkinski of the Bettertogether Slovenia branch

    Thanks for the laughs!

    Well, that should stop the Beeb wringing their hands about what sort of programmes could be produced by SBC! They do seem to be exercised about what we would do without them; nice of them to worry.

    Try reading Professor Aliesbadas Tomkinski from Slovenia trying to make out he is actually from and in Slovenia. High comedy in his lastest CIF all on it’s own. What a silly silly BetterTogetherist he really is.

    Tomkins isn’t anything other than a Loyalist and no amount of education can change that.

    Every word he says has been dipped first in royal blue.

    Any wonder he’s canvassing in Jordanhill and finding lot’s of fellow Catholic/Irish-hating Rangers supporters?

    Law professor? WATP? No Surrender ?

    The man’s a joke.

    The man’s a joke. But Slovenia is a terrific view point for destroying Scottish democracy and the incredible No of it all, latest BetterTogether Slovene says-

    “I never said everybody should vote no.

    However, I am against ANY nation claiming independence on the basis of a heap of divisive LIES served to the people by its government which demanded the independence referendum in the first place (and with a narrow simple majority vote, and without ANY evidence that a majority of the people wanted the independence REFERENDUM, and without ANY evidence that a majority of the people EVER wanted INDEPENDENCE itself, and under all these dodgy circumstances also against the wishes of the majority of the people in the rest of the state who do not have a vote but will have to bear the costs of separation).

    How about you?”

    At least the nutty professor concedes there is a place called Scotland and we do have an actual government, just not the one my Slovene girlfriend wants, nae demands we have.

    Prof Tomkinski’s made a new CiF friend, following his long dreary afternoon of rule Britannia Guardian lectures.

    Long hols for uni lecturers in Glasgow and Slovenia

    AstokHel commented

    “And I for one very much welcome Abiesalba’s posts, full of detail and a different outlook coming from a country who recently became independent. Please continue!”

    Yes please continue Prof, you’re making a colossal fool of yourself.

    An origami swan is the second best use I can think of for the Daily Mail.

    Some useful light was thrown on the currency issue in last Sunday’s Good Morning Scotland. (slipped through the net?)

    The topic began with Alec Salmond and Alistair Darling making their points. This was followed by a very illuminating interview with an “independent expert” (the economist John Kay) spanning approx. 08:35 to 15:00 http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04d5478

    It ended less usefully with two other economists to represent opposite sides of the debate.

    Is Little Origami Swan a euphemism or perhaps code? Mhmmm L.O.S. ? Any takers?
