Cruddas Drops CMD In It Over Union With Scotland

#2
It would appear that the Conservative and Unionist Party are not wholly convinced that they can save the Union, or that they even want to.

Cameron's got no intention of saving the Union, why would he? The loss of 72 Scottish seats in the HofC will hardly damage his electoral prospects, will it?

Oh, those nasty Unionists. It will be interesting to see how that well known David "Let's keep the UK united" Cameron talks his way out of this one.

Should be some laughs over the next day or so.

CMD and Tories caught being sly as well as being incompetent shocker.

I hope the Jocks get independence. I'll be made up if they draw the new border just south of Worcester so I get to go with them.

So a party official who has already been found guilty of big-timing, mentions it would be best if the party officially said it backs the Union. This is then disclosed by a Murdoch newspaper. I can hardly see any party saying they want to break up the Union even if the Tories would gain rather a lot. Cameron certainly wouldn't want to go down in history as the PM who split the Union so I think he's quite legit when he says he wouldn't like it to happen.
And what's wrong with calling Salmond "that mad Scotsman?" Probably takes it as a compliment.

Stop being so bloody sensible - I'm enjoying this!

The irony is that releasing Scotland to the financial outer darkness of state-dependency Socialism would actually ensure the Tories a decent chance of a regular majority (except for their current inept performance being a mighty turn-off for their natural constituency in England). The party with most to gain from keeping the Union is Labour.
