If Scotland gets independence then we are knackered for power again.

Surely Dianne Abbott would have been much better than Ed Milliband, so far Labour is like a wet fish against the Tories!

Erm, no she wouldn't ;)

And Labour could have won its last three GE victories without a single Scottish seat.

Amazing how few people seem to be aware of that......

'If Scotland gets independence then we are knackered for power again.'

As Salmond is not only an astute politician but also a winner,the referendum will probably be a choice between independence and Devo Max,so whatever the result it will be a win-win for the SNP.

Devo Max would also solve the WLQ with a handful of Scottish MP's left to debate defence and foreign affairs in Westminster.

Either result will be bad news for Labour.

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear."
Marcus Tullius Cicero - (106-43 BC) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator
