But as soon as you start to examine the implications for an independent Scotland - from bailed out
The reality is that independence would make Alex Salmond, Scotland's first Prime Minister. An ambition he has held for a very long time. And that is what this is all about. This man will sell his own country in order to achieve his personal ambition.
The British government should bring forward this referendum to May 2012 - just three months time - with a simple in/out question and have done with it. Independence is too important an issue for the Scottish people to be sacrificed on the alter of Alex Salmond's ego.
