1. Because it appears that he’s rather fond of this tie that showcases the Saint Andrew’s Cross, which doubles up as the Scottish flag.

24. By now, he’s probably thinking, “I wonder how long I can get away with wearing the same tie again and again without anyone noticing.”

25. It’s really just surprising that Salmond’s not bored of the tie yet.

26. Because yes. We’re really bored of it. #RetireTheTie
