Better Apart

Lord Robertson, former UK Defence Minister and NATO Secretary General, has the reputation of being a sensible man. If so, after yesterday’s bizarre outburst in New York, he should fire his speechwriter. If, by any chance he wrote it alone and unaided, he should seek counselling, as a matter of urgency.

I suppose we might feel complimented by the suggestion that Scotland is central to the defence of Western Europe. On the other hand, most right-thinking Scots will be scandalised by the language that was used. The increasingly vicious No campaign has never presented a single lucid reason against Scottish Independence. Instead we have seen a sustained series of threats, of which Lord R’s is the emptiest and the most ludicrous.

YES for Scotland.

    Isn’t this the man who was a member of CND, yet presided over nuclear missile subs as Defence Secretary and was in charge of NATO?

    Politicians and expediency….

    Yes he joins the likes of Alisdair Darling, one time Marxist Edinburgh Councillor now earning six figure amounts speechifying to bankers on top of his salary.
    What is the going rate for principles these days?
