THE WAR of words and actions between England and Scotland has been ramped up to a state never seen since pre-Darien days. Then, ‘good’ King William helped ensure that Scotland’s daring bid to enrich itself would fail. Has Salmond’s bluff been called? Will Osborne stick his tongue oot and say, “only kidding”? We’ll find out tomorrow. For now, if this was a game of poker, Salmond’s debt default bluff has been well and truly called. AhDinnaeKen reports:

UK CHANCELLOR Bullingdon Osborne is likely to declare economic war on Scotland tomorrow.
He said he’s had enough of Salmond’s poker playing and it was time to show who really held all the cards in the present currency Union poker game.
The Scottish government accused the chancellor of “running scared” and acting like a “bully”.
Indy commenter, Ian McWhirter, said the chancellor was effectively declaring “economic warfare” on Scotland. Though he kept quiet about Salmond’s threat to default on Scotland’s debt share if he didnae get his currency Union.
The most lucid and wisest advice given to Firstminster Salmond today was from an unexpected quarter.
Country singer, Kenny Rogers (still alive) offered the following wisdom:
“You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
“Know when to fold ’em
“Know when to walk away
“Know when to run
“You never count your money
“When you’re sittin’ at the table
“There’ll be time enough for countin’
“When the dealin’s done”
He further added:
“Now every gambler knows the secret to survivin’
“Is knowin’ what to throw away
“And knowin’ what to keep
“‘Cause every hand’s a winner
“And every hand’s a loser
“And the best that you can hope for
“Is to die in your sleep”
Wag, half-wit, moron and hate blinded idiot, Longshanker, said:
“That’s it then. Indy has died in its sleep. That’s a shame. Next!”
