Scottish referendum a chance to send Tories a message

IT now looks as though neither side can win a convincing victory in the Scottish referendum. What this illustrates is the gross inadequacy of our form of democracy.

It is understandable the Scottish electorate feels unrepresented by the 'coalition' – essentially Tory – Government, because so do millions of the rest of us.

The Scots are in a unique position to deliver bloody noses to these vain, strutting peacocks. There can be little doubt that the loss of Scotland to the UK would be remembered as the only lasting legacy of the 'coalition'.
