I see the corpulent Simon Heffer has outdone himself in ranting this morning.
He essentially demands that the Union that links England and Scotland should be dissolved because England and Scotland are different nations and that the Scots have too much power over England even though the whinging Jocks are just a bunch of subsidy junkies (I paraphrase lightly).
I have warned about the Conservatives' attitude to the Union in the past, and it is now quite clear what the agenda of much of the right wing press has become: to "big up" Alex Salmond and drive Scotland out of the United Kingdom.
I think that it will fail.
I think those who play fast and loose with the Union should be treated with utter contempt.
(and incidentally at $100 bbl oil prices, the idea that Scotland is dependent on the Union is simply barking)
