The blog below was written before today’s blitz of scare stories about Scotland’s financial institutions moving their HQs to the City of London – where in practice their decision-making already sits. Actually, the briefings by the banks and fund managers were old hat: the main thrust of anti-Yes propaganda was provided by the media, whipped up by the politicians, and especially by George Osborne’s Treasury. In this the BBC’s Nick Robinson played a willing part. I have seen Alex Salmond in disappointing form, but here, in front of the international media, he is at his measured best. Well worth watching.
