More on independence

Gillian Bowditch makes the same point that I made yesterday about the prospects of an independent Scotland:
Mundell’s assertion, however, has the benefit of putting Labour and the SNP’s rather esoteric scrap about the legality of a referendum into perspective. The truth is there is only one answer to the independence question; it depends. It depends on who is running the country and on their attitude to wealth.
Unfortunately, as Ms Bowditch points out, our national attitude to wealth creation is, well, unhelpful.
