Salmond Crosses the Line

VC's of Wellington College

These pages are full of instances of people speaking before engaging their brains, me included. Alex Salmond though crossed the line yesterday when he said, in referring to David Cameron and the "debate" debate,  “He should have been called to account last year and should be called to account this year. Like most posh boys, given half a chance, he’ll run away from a fight."

Just for reference Mr Salmond, below you can see the number of boys on the Roll of Honour for the Great War from each of the following schools,

  • Eton 1157
