Alex Salmond Thinks a Second Scottish Referendum Is Inevitable and It May Happen Sooner Than People Think - Here's How

After all, the constitutional goal of the SNP is to forge a breakaway Scotland. Plus, Salmond has casually dropped a variation on the "inevitable" line in every interview since the end of last year, stripping the "new" out of "news". Yet his comments were instructive on when another vote could take place.
