    All the same Alec, It is odd that David Cameron seems to harbour some illusion that anybody North of Gretna will pay the slightest attention to either him or Ed Milliband! There is only one reason that Westminster doesn’t want Scotland to leave the Union, and it’s not because we are a financial millstone around the necks of the English as some claim.
    Anyway, after 300 years of being taken to the cleaners by a succession of “Lawyers, Meenisters an Lairds, an siccan drush” (J.J.Haldane Burgess) Do you not think it’s high time somebody else had a shot??
