A picture released by the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute dated 1915 purportedly shows soldiers standing over skulls of victims from the Armenian village of Sheyxalan in the Mush valley, on the Caucasus front during the First World War. Armenians say up to 1.5 million of their forebears were killed in a 1915-16 genocide by Turkey's former Ottoman Empire. Turkey says 500,000 died and ascribes the toll to fighting and starvation during World War I. (Photo credit should read STR/AFP/Getty Images)

"Voters who support the SNP know that what they are voting for now, in a general election, is for a party that will do its utmost to extract every concession possible from rUK for Scotland's benefit. The SNP is now in a perfect position - able to act as 'provocateur' in its political demands while not having to take on the responsibilities and imposed by true independence."

"Any politician who pointed out that a quart will not come out of a pint pot, would elicit cries of assent. But enough people would vote for one who claimed HE could manage this feat! However, no doubt some legal eagle would try to sue, on behalf of the taxpayer/voter."
By Will-Monitor on If a politician breaks a promise should a voter have a legal remedy?
