Can the daftie nae see that thon's a pretty guid argument for Scottish independence?

I've tried.... god knows I've tried ....but the grammar has got me beaten and the blog makes it worse.

I ken that the SNP isny your favourite political party but that is the maist inarticulate post you've ever made.

You've had a couple of low alcohol beers haven't you!

Is it really that hard?

Supporters o Scotland's independence want Scotland tae be a compact, coherent nation state open to the outside world, which has excellent relations with its immediate neighbours but which is not prepared to be run by a supra-national body.

The numpty faa wrote that piece thinks that's the perfect state of affairs for the Yookay's relations wi the EU but disna understand that his words perfectly describe the thing his hale article is s'posed tae be an argiement against; Scotland's independence.

Ah huv tae say that ah thought Neil's point wis quite clear, but ah admire the tolerant and completely unpatronisin way that he explained it fur ye, Clash.

Mind you, ah've been at the low-alcohol beers masel, so mebbe that explains it. Mebbe some ither folk might think aboot tryin the low-alcohol beers noo an again, an then they might unnerstaun a bit mair of whit's gaun oan?
