I’m flitting from meeting-to-show from interview-to-talk from Glasgow-to-Edinburgh and back this week and have something on every day and sometimes two things…I’m rescheduling because of overlap.
 
And on top of all that I’ve just heard from Ian Wood that there’s only 35 years of oil left…35 years! What are we going to do? And according to John Birt we won’t be able to watch Strictly while the oil dwindles…excuse me while I reach for the Kleenex.

When the Treasury produced a major report in May claiming that every Scot would be £1,400 better off under the union, this received wall-to-wall coverage in the media.  But was it in any way accurate? This is what we set out to examine in a report published by "Options for Scotland" on 14th August, (available on our website www.cuthbert1.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk ).

It's coming down to two clear issues in the race for the independence referendum.  The question is of course which of the two, NHS or Currency, chimes more with the electorate.

WHY are Labour and Conservative politicians so set on rejecting a currency union with an independent Scotland? Sure, there are technical issues regarding how such an arrangement would be managed. But the vehemence of the rejection of the notion is both surprising and personal.
 
For Instance, Ed Balls says he will refuse to serve as Labour’s Chancellor of the Exchequer if a currency union is created. I understand Nye Bevan resigning from the Labour government in 1951 after the introduction of NHS prescription charges.
