Once again politics and Star Trek are intersecting. This time it is the (soon to be former) Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond who thinks those who voted no in last week’s Scottish Independence referendum may have buyer’s remorse akin to a certain genetic superman from the future.
Scottish Leader Predicts ‘Wrath of Khan’ Voters
Last week voters in Scotland rejected a referendum to seek independence from the United Kingdom. And on Sunday Sky News interviewed Alex Salmond, the leader of the Scottish National Party and the man who had pushed for the referendum. While talking about the people who voted ‘no,’ Salmond predicted that they will eventually become angry at UK leaders who promised changes. He specifically said "the Wrath of Khan will be as of nothing compared to the wrath of a ‘no’ voter who has been gulled by the Westminster leadership."
TrekMovie has the video clip below, plus we added a simulation of Salmond’s prediction for no voters.
