SNP’s Tory allies

In THE run-up to the independence referendum, it seems to me that Alex Salmond could ask for no better allies in his campaign than the Conservative front bench at Westminster.

The combined antics of Prime Minister David Cameron, Chancellor George Osborne and Education Secretary Michael Gove so far this year would surely be enough to awaken the spirit of rebellion in the most mild-mannered Scot at being governed by toffee-nosed southern English poltroons. And yes, I know Michael Gove is from Aberdeen, but I think he qualifies for that description.
