The problem really is that given how huge the numbers are for the SNP right now, its pointless to even do it. They're preventing newer blood in the party the chance to stand, just to protect themselves if the worse case comes to light. Its annoying and doesn't really paint a nice light on how the SNP selects candidates.
If your an emerging party, then sure. But for the SNP, a government in power for almost a decade, with two arguably very well established first ministers holding constituency seats, its unnecessary to still have a cabinet in the list, for safety's sake.
Believe me, if there was any proof of Alex Salmond's ego, the cherry on top was right there in speech marks.
