Some Thoughts On The Death Of Bashir Ahmad

Alex Salmond - "He was the kindest, most decent human being it has ever been my pleasure to meet....He was a credit to both his faith and to his country".
Stevie Purcell - "He was a gentleman in all he did. I will miss him."
Annabel Goldie - "Bashir Ahmad was a real gentleman, much liked and respected across the political spectrum."
Tavish Scott - "He was a decent and honourable gentleman and a good man to speak to."
Nicola Sturgeon - "Bashir Ahmad was an exceptional person, and I will miss him deeply...Bashir represented the best of Glasgow and the very best of Scotland."
On February 5 2006, Mr. Ahmad desecrated a Mass. Given the fulsomeness of the tributes currently being paid to him, it seems only appropriate to append that footnote to his eulogies.

Sorry about the rather crapulous tone of the first comment - in mitigation, I was moderating while half cut.


Have another go.

My dear Martin. I advise moderation when moderating!

For my part the reference in my comments to repeated effort was in respect continued attempts at getting past the word verification test, and the subsequent frustration at the uncertainty of success. Obviously it can now be confirmed to have been failure or we would be on comment 10 by now.

I never read anything else into your original response.

God bless.

There are many, many reasons why Scotland's Catholics form such a bulwark of the Union. This is one of them.

David. Expand on that. The union protects us from Muslim ...muslim what exactly?

David didn't use the word 'Muslim'.

OK, forgive my presumption.

What is it then about this incident that is such an example of why Catholics allegedly form a bulwark vote for the union.

(Not this one David obviously ;-)

He's surely not going to claim it is going to be the norm in an Independent Scotland?

You'd better ask him that.
