Liam Kirkaldy: MI5 claims leave Scots shaken not stirred
COMMENT: Liam Kirkaldy of Holyrood magazine looks at recent claims of secret service involvement in the Scottish independence referendum, considering the impression made by the suggestions as well as the potential merit of the claims.
The question of James Bond’s stance on Scottish independence is one that has never fully – or even partially – been answered. In fact it has never really been asked.
The answer probably hinges on whether the James Bond in question is played by Sean Connery. But questions over a fictional spy’s political views have arisen following claims that the secret service is playing a role in the independence debate.
