Does anyone else entertain niggling doubts about their own mental state as they listen to the increasingly brazen lies and the ever more fantastical claims? Do you, betimes, catch yourself thinking, is it me?
Contradictions and inconsistencies
A political union which can only be maintained with lies, deceit, denigration and intimidation is not a political union which can sensibly be described as a success.
Bring down the clowns!
When Hunt, or another of his British ilk, throws a custard pie in Nicola Sturgeon's face, the audience screams with amused delight as they see in their lumpen imagination Britannia's bold favourite asserting dominance over her possessions and inflicting defeat and mortification on those who dare challenge her divinely-ordained status.

Call me nostalgic, but I rather miss the days when an emphatic vote for the SNP would be hailed by the party leadership as a victory for the independence movement.

Now is the time!
Statements and remarks from those 'leading SNP figures' who might be expected to have at least an inkling of Nicola Sturgeon's intentions almost invariably refer to some variation on the theme of 'getting the positive case for independence out there'.
