Alex Salmond

Asked if the Prime Minister had congratulated Alex Salmond on his appointment as First Minister, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) replied that the Prime Minister had been to Washington and Iraq, and therefore had been rather busy.

Asked whether it was good enough that the Prime Minister thought he was too busy to make a 30 second phonecall to Alex Salmond, the PMOS repeated that the Prime Minister had been travelling. He had no doubt at all that at some stage there would be a proper substantive discussion. We were not interested in gesture politics, we were interested in serious conversation.

Asked what kind of relationship the Prime Minister would like to have with Alex Salmond, the PMOS replied that he was sure that the Prime Minister was interested in having an entirely proper relationship with Mr Salmond, and one that worked to the benefit of both Scotland and the UK as a whole.
