Campaign for an English Parliament
Dear Mr Cullen,
Your headline says 'England to dance to Scotland's tune' says Salmond yet you must be aware that Mr Salmond said nothing of the sort.
The relevant part of his speech is here:
"Votes for the SNP will turn all these noes into yeses from the London government. A Scottish bloc of MPs will unblock Westminster."
"We shall use voting power to make London dance to a Scottish tune."
London Government is a reference to Westminster which is the British parliament.
I look forward to an apology and a retraction on the epolitics site.
Adjusting politicians speeches to give an inaccurate account of what they said is simply not acceptable and is poor politics.
If you want to attack the Scottish National Party (I wonder why when logically the British state is the obstacle to international recognition for England!) then do so on the basis of what they actually say.
This kind of silly headline based on inaccurate remarks is no way to gain credibility for your campaign.
