Indie-ref

At the Labour Leadership Hustings, I was discussing with comrades the impact of the “Indie” referendum, and argued that we had brewed it big time. While the need for an answer to the currency question and the risk of capital flight (supported by every Scottish saver) were important, until Gordon Brown made his speech on pooled sovereignty and the advantages, successes and future of the United Kingdom, Labour’s argument was gives us your votes and seats to sustain a Labour Government. Neither were enough and Brown’s speech was too late and under reported since all the English media wanted to talk about the “solemn vow” of devo-max, which Cameron pissed all over within hours of the result.
