So let's be clear about this...
- There will be separate debates in Wales and Scotland featuring Plaid and the SNP as appropriate;
- The SNP will not be running enough candidates UK-wide to have a chance of forming a Government;
- Alex Salmond is not even going to be a candidate at the General Election
And yet Mr Salmond is still thinking about taking legal action in order to secure himself a space in the UK wide leaders' debates.
Is this a case of ego above reason?
