Yes please

Not every holder of the office of Secretary of State for Scotland has been up to the job, but the current incumbent really has lowered the benchmark. When Alastair  Carmichael replaced the respected and popular Michael Moore, the word was that he would play a more forceful part in the Referendum campaign than his predecessor. In fact, as this quote from this morning’s media demonstrates, he could turn out to be the Yes camp’s secret weapon.

‘THERE is a real danger the UK Government would be forced to place guards at the Border if Scots vote for independence, a Cabinet Minister has warned. Alistair Carmichael, Secretary of State for Scotland, said the Scottish National Party’s immigration plans could make such a move necessary, even if Scotland did not join the European Union’s Schengen free travel area. His comments are the strongest warning yet by a Coalition minister that independence could lead to border posts.’

Fine. Carry on, Minister; you’re doing a great job.

    I’ve recently come to the conclusion that there’s more method to this madness than meets the eye. How about
    Scotland = Labour Voters
    If Scotland elects Divorce – Less Labour Voters to worry about in the future
    How to get Scotland to choose Divorce? Simple come up with more and more ridiculous policies and procedures that are so at odds with Scottish inbred sense of fairness that undecided folk are pushed into voting Yes.
    Scotland Votes Yes….- Yippee job done
    Now how can we get rid of the Welsh?
    Got it – We’ll announce that because Scotland voted for Independence we have to locate Trident to Tiger Bay.
