As did every other SNP member on line, I  received, an hour ago, a letter from Alex Salmond  advising me of his intention to resign as Party leader and First Minister.

I sent an immediate two word reply: ‘Please reconsider.’ I hope that every other recipient has done the same.

If he goes now, the people who intimidated the 6% of the population that prevented a Yes vote will never stop crowing about it. For Scotland’s sake, he must stay.

    I always voted labour in the past, brought up in mining cumnock, but over the last 7 years watch the SNP not making a mess of things, I voted yes for independence because I trusted in what Alex and his friends, QJ excluded, were telling me. I know it might not make a big difference, but I’ve decided to join the SNP.

    Mr Salmond has a lot to be proud about and im sure we have not seen the back of him. Is it time for the SNP to drop the N from their name to attract more people onto their substantial voter base and build on their successes ? I voted yes and was proud that so many had a shared vision. Time to build on that as the vow doesnt get delivered as promised.

    Although I didn’t have a vote, and would have voted no if I had, I’d like to go on record as saying that the way Alex Salmond conducted himself and the yes campaign is a credit not just to Scotland, but to politics in general. His going will be a huge loss to the UK, and to politics. The number of honest politicians will be reduced by 100%
