Alex Salmond bets our future on voting whims

BY the time the consequences of destroying one of the oldest and most successful political unions become clear, I suspect Alex Salmond will be long gone to the lucrative lecture circuit.

Having bet the future of the UK on the voting whims of some thrawn Celts, David Cameron will also be gone. Their successors, put in place by a furious English electorate, will be in no mood to do Scotland favours and we are likely to end up in the embrace of the IMF. Too late we will realise we voted for an impoverished statelet facing public-service cuts, unemployment and raised taxes.
