It's all good fun for those of us who miss politics when sport takes over the airwaves. Will the games have any affect on support for the SNP or independence? In the short term, maybe, but not significantly. In the long term, not at all. And that's at least partly because the SNP being ungracious, sneering and negative is hardly news to Scots, even to those who vote for them.
It was difficult to be a Scot in London yesterday, because for once it felt like the real action was elsewhere. Alex Salmond's speech to the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, in which he laid out the details of the SNP's constitutional position and plans felt like some kind of historic moment.
