Alex Salmond's debating technique in his the fiery head-to-head with pro-union leader Alistair Darling may have split opinion across Scotland and the wider United Kingdom. But one member of the live studio audience wasn't angry at the first minister, he was just very, very disappointed.
"I came here tonight as a businessman to listen to a debate that was going to be for the benefit for me and businesses of Scotland," he said.
"Mr Salmond, I am disappointed in you. As a politician of some note, some of your remarks have been snide and not very nice coming from a leader of the Scottish parliament. I am disappointed. If this is what we are going to have as an independent Scotland, then obviously we are in for trouble."
Unsurprisingly, a visibly irritated Darling was also less than impressed with Salmond's approach to the debate. "You might have some good lines but you've got no good answers," he said.
Salmond appeared to annoy Darling and the disappointed audience member by his decision to point out what he saw as some of the more ludicrous reasons the pro-union campaign had given for voting against independence, including the ability of Scotland to defend itself against UFOs and which side of the road cars would have to drive on.
