Is there no limit to Alex Salmond's ego? It appears he thinks he should be included in a UK wide debate between the Party leaders if one is arranged during the next election campaign and if the big boys won't let him play, he's going to take them to court.
What a ridiculous notion, for a party which is fielding candidates in less than a tenth of the seats across the UK? If you allow the SNP in, then you probably also have to include the Greens, UKIP, the Welsh and Cornish nationalists as well and potentially even the BNP. It's going to be a crowded stage and not conducive to deep and meaningful debate.
The only people who should really be in that debate are the three main UK Westminster Party leaders.
I don't get why he should want to be on the UK stage as he spends his time telling anyone who'll listen that he wants Scotland to be independent. It doesn't make sense that he should want to hang onto the coat tails of Clegg, Cameron and Brown.
The SNP view is only relevant in Scotland and there will be, as at every other election, the chance for senior Scottish figures from each party to put their case. There usually is at least one debate of some sort and that's the place for the SNP. Why on earth would people in Derbyshire or Hampshire want to hear Alex Salmond going on about Scottish independence? In a US election context, it would be like including Schwarzenegger, the Governor of California, in a presidential debate - nonsensical.
If Alex Salmond wants to blow the SNP's election budget on a court case he's bound to lose, then that's up to him, but he will just make himself look stupid in the process.
