Andy Murray has declared he’s for Yes just hours before the polls open. Crucially though by tweeting his support in the middle of the night, his comments cannot be reported by the broadcasters due to the midnight imposed restrictions of the Representation of the People Act. They also came too late for the dead tree press. 24 hours earlier and this would have been a massive coup for Salmond, though Guido suspects for commercial reasons this was a deliberate move on Murray’s part.
Meanwhile, the leader of the ‘free’ world is against freedom for Scotland. Guido hasn’t seen independence doing America much harm. Perhaps George III should have deployed the ‘what currency are you going to use’ line instead of sending in the Redcoats.
