Thread Name: BS: scottish independence
Subject: RE: BS: scottish independence
I think a case might be made that Project Fear was actually rather respobnsible: with no answers to a number of very important questions - currency, finance, inherited debt, diplomatic relationships, any one of which could have sunk the operation - it was an act of purblind folly to simply say we'll leave. Our society is never far from chaos, and Salmond brought you close to the edge: that was irresponsible.

What is also irresponsible is his resignation. As leader of a Party which lost a constitutional vote, the entire Party should have resigned, according to past precedent, bringing on a General Election. If he were to resign within that, it would be unremarkable, but going without removing the structursl problem is ducking the issue. Yet again.
