Have your say

“So fair and foul a day I have not seen”, as Shakespeare put it.

However, before either David Cameron or Nicola Sturgeon start to crow about their respective victories, they should both remember one thing.

Despite one’s enemies being crushed under one’s heel, one definition of democracy is rule by the majority on behalf of the minority, not in spite of them.
