So a coalition of widely divergent interest groups persuaded the Scots to vote with their (Brave)hearts and not their heads. Of course, we did it as a nation, opting for New Labour instead of the Tory wets (was it just Ken Clarke's brown suede shoes?). And for the nation, on balance, it seems to be working. Changing the power structure and reporting lines may also succeed as a precedent for, say, solving the Northern Irish impasse (refer the warring parties to Brussels and send in the blue berets?).
But for the Scots' economy, right here, right now, it looks like a disaster.
