Maybe the arguments most touted by the Yes campaign give away their real intentions whether they know it or not. For there is usually a fairly detailed description of the policies that an independent Scotland 'would' pursue. I begin to suspect it's just another political class rubbing their hands at the thought of all that power. Do they want Scots to be free (to not choose socialist policies for instance) or do they think they are campaigning for a mandate for independence and their policies as a single package? For these are entirely separate. Ok these outcomes might happen, but what right have a 'pre government' campaign to decide on a putative future nation's position on nuclear power/ Trident, for instance? If you buy a carton of milk with a bowl of muesli pictured on the cover, remember, that's just a serving suggestion, what you're buying is milk. If you see an independence campaign laying out the policies of a Scottish government, remember that's just one possible scenario, and what you're buying is the creation of a new sandpit for the political elite to get their buckets and spades out and build castles on.
