This is all part of a very carefully coreographed plan B. The SNP now have a membership of over 92000. More than UKIP and the Lib Dems combinedand much much more than the North Britain branch of Labour. With Jim Murphy looking likely to be the new Labour North branch leader the SNP's membership can only grow.

If the other parts of the UK vote to leave Europe then there will be another referendum. If the "vow" is not honored, which it won't be (around 30 MPs turned up at a debate about how to proceed with devolving more powers a couple of days ago), there will be another referendum.

Scotland has got the rest of the UK by the short and curlies. Westminster MP's are to short sighted to see it.

You think? I fear you credit them with too much political foresight lovelyhead.

I don't think anyone could have predicted the rise in political awareness, and low level political activism, that the referendum has generated. Yes, it's falling back now, but the disgust directed at the labour party in particular is very evident. The Daily Record is spinning Murphy as the shoe-in for Lamont's thorny crown, but the alternative news sources are screaming "Blairite" (cue that picture of Donald Sutherland from The Bodysnatchers!), and it's catching on.

This general feeling of disgust from the so-called '45', and disquiet from some of the '55', towards labour is the biggest boost the SNP have had since Salmond got the hot seat in Holyrood. I give them full marks for milking that, but I don't think they pre-planned it.....

The rest of your comment is pretty much how I think things will pan out. Since the referendum was agreed, I've thought that Scottish independence was just a matter of time. Cameron let the genie out of the bottle, and whoever is in charge in Westminster when the yes vote is >50%, they'll not be slow in pointing that out!

The idiot should have just said "Nyet"!
