Not everyone happy with royal holiday

Disappointed at the gushing statement made by Alex Salmond on First Minister’s questions announcing a holiday for “Her Majesty’s” diamond jubilee or something. Everyone in Scotland will not be delighted-far; from it.

I realise that the SNP is a Royalist party but with a significant amount of republicans in the party maybe a less cringing statement could have been made if indeed any statement was necessary at that time.
