Salmond warns magazine: You’ll rue day you poked fun at Scots

The latest edition uses a map of Scotland, or “Skintland”, with puns instead of place names such as “Glasgone”, “Edinborrow” and the “Highinterestlands”.
An article inside concludes that independence would come at a high price and could leave Scotland as “one of Europe’s vulnerable, marginal economies”.
