There's an article in today's Herald which clearly shows the stupidity of the unionists.
It appears the Lords Economic Affairs Committee has suggested the Westminster and Holyrood parliaments should publish their 'red lines' for independence talks before next year's referendum. A sensible idea and one that many Scots have been calling for in recent months in the hope that distinct divisions would provide much more detail.
However, Danny Alexander says no pre-negotiations:
"We have been clear we will not 'pre- negotiate' the terms of independence before people in Scotland have had their say in the referendum.
"To do so would require the Government to act on behalf of only part of the UK."
The Scottish government said its position on "all these issues will be set out before and in the White Paper'.
It's well documented that the Westminster parliament, as well as Holyrood, has been making preparations in case the Scots vote Yes, so why are they so loathed to share the information with the people who live here? Is it bloody-mindedness or something more sinister?
Perhaps it's a bit of both but it's also insulting to Scotland. The voters here can't decide on the score until they've seen both team's red lines.
