This session of the Scottish Parliament went out with a rampant SNP, a worthy but dull Labour leadership, a gallant but failed Tory intervention and a clip round the ear for the Liberal Democrats.Quite how Alex Salmond has managed to stay so completely on top when all around him his policies are crumbling and his minority status prevents him from moving even the most mildly contentious legislation, may say more about our political climate than it does about the man himself.Yesterday was a perfect illustration of the state in which Scottish ...

Salmond uses Burns in Obama offensive

Published Date: 18 January 2009 ALEX SALMOND is attempting to form his own special relationship. The First Minister is trying to schmooze Barack Obama by inviting him to a glitzy Burns Supper in Washington, even suggesting that the President-elect shares some of the qualities of Scotland's national poet. The First Minister is hopeful that the world's most powerful man will acknowledge his Scottish ancestry by sharing haggis, neeps and tatties with him during the events marking the 250th anniversary of Robert Burns's birth. Salmond has yet to receive a reply from Obama, but he wants to ...

Independence may bring more Scottish content – but can they afford the BBC?
The sums don't seem to add up as licence fee payers in Scotland get back more than they put inAs the gloves have come off in the Scottish independence referendum debate, bankers, business leaders and ministers from Westminster have been lining up to tell people in Scotland that "yes" will mean no. No to the pound, a possible no to EU membership and maybe even no to the queen as head of state. And so it was that last week culture minister Maria Miller made news with her statement that "yes" to independence would mean no to the BBC.Now there are a couple of oddities about this last intervention. First, it's not exactly clear that Miller has the power to deliver this outcome – after all she and the government don't exactly own the BBC. Although a yes vote followed by no more licence fees paid to the BBC and the seizure of its assets in Scotland – which the Scottish government sees as the basis for its own new Scottish Broadcasting Corporation (SBC) – might appear to force the issue.
Scottish anxieties on independence revealed in poll
Support for going it alone drops to 32% in Ipsos Mori survey, which compares views on both sides of border The Scots are more anxious than the English and Welsh about the effect of independence on the United Kingdom as a whole, and also worry about Scotland in particular. That is the finding of new Ipsos Mori polling on both sides of the border, which has been exclusively shared with the Guardian.On Monday, for the first time since December, Ipsos updated its polling on the independence referendum for Scottish TV, charting a very slight widening of the no campaign's advantage. Among voters who say they are certain to turn out in September's independence referendum, an unchanged 57% of Scots say they will vote no, but the proportion who say they will vote yes has dropped two points, from 34% in December to 32% today.Scottish nationalists had hoped that the joint claim by Ed Balls, Danny Alexander and George Osborne that London would never allow a post-independence currency union was so
SNP 'has exaggerated Scotland's oil revenues'
Institute of Fiscal Studies warns that predictions by Alex Salmond's government of North Sea earnings are 'too optimistic'The Institute of Fiscal Studies has warned that Alex Salmond's government has exaggerated the size of Scotland's latest North Sea oil revenues, leaving a deeper shortfall in tax income.The IFS said the Scottish government's forecasts of oil revenues were "too optimistic" for the last two financial years, and were also double the size of the oil taxes predicted for the first year of independence by the Office for Budget Responsibility.In a new analysis on the current state of the UK economy, the IFS said that the OBR had downgraded Scotland's oil revenues in 2016/17 to £3.3bn, leaving an independent Scotland having to borrow the equivalent of 3.6% of its GDP that year.That prediction was half the size of the oil revenues of £6.8bn-£7.9bn forecast for 2016/17 by the Scottish government's white paper on independence in November – a disparity that highlighted Scotl
