For their EU question-and-answer session with Michael Gove, Sky somehow found a token Jock to bus down who was terribly worried about a Leave vote leading to a second "divisive" independence referendum. What a tedious thing to do. Regardless of which poll you believe, it's undoubtedly the case that a huge proportion of the Scottish electorate would be only too delighted to have a relatively early second referendum, so why not get one of those people to mess with Govey's head by asking which way we should vote on June 23rd to bring the next indyref closer?
The question asked may have been much duller than that, but Gove's answer was still fascinating. He said it wasn't the case that a vote to leave one union would cause Scotland to leave another union. But it was quite hard to understand WHY he thought it wouldn't have that effect, given that his arguments for Britain leaving the European Union were in some cases literally identical to the arguments for Scotland becoming an independent country - and I really do mean that Gove's words were directly lifted from our own Yes campaign.
"They say we're too small." Oooh, that sounds a bit like...? "Too poor." Just coincidence, surely? "Too stupid." It's the full house, folks! And he also shamelessly used Alex Salmond's familiar line about "losing a surly lodger and gaining a good neighbour".
The charitable interpretation is that Gove was privately moved and inspired by Scotland's struggle for self-determination and self-government, and has been biding his time until he could apply the same arguments in respect of the country he owes allegiance to (Greater England). A more cynical interpretation is that he's just stealing words that he reckoned had proved highly persuasive in another campaign. Either way, we're entitled to take enormous heart from that. Imitation remains the sincerest form of flattery.
