Debate painted a bleak picture

Published 29/08/2014

AS an English outsider doggedly sitting through the TV debate on Scottish independence, my overwhelming feeling was that neither protagonist presented an attractive option for the rest of the UK.

Mr Salmond concentrated on a ludicrous currency union and a costly (at least to the rest of the UK) defence policy, while Mr Darling painted a picture of Scotland dependent on bailouts from the rest of the UK. Not a great future, whichever side prevails.
