ON 13 March, BBC Scotland interviewed a doctor trying to explain why there is a shortage of doctors applying for posts.

On the doctor’s desk in a prominent position was a “YES” campaign mug. She claimed overwork and too much paperwork – no doubt this is not helping the situation – but failed to see what was in front of her: which English or foreign doctors are going to want to move their families to Scotland, to such an unsettled country, whilst the SNP are still posturing about independence?
