From the Telegraph's 'report' on the seemingly imminent resolution of the referendum stand-off -
"Mr Cameron told the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham that the Olympics highlighted the depth of feeling for the UK, adding: “Whether our athletes were English, Scottish, Welsh or from Northern Ireland, they draped themselves in one flag."
I know. It would have been even more touching if they'd all done it of their own free will.
"Now, there's one person who didn't like that, and he's called Alex Salmond."
Er...make that two, David. Don't suppose there's a third out there somewhere, by any chance?
"I'm going to see him on Monday to sort out that referendum on independence by the end of 2014."
Ah, you mean you're sheepishly going to make a string of concessions in order to secure the one and only thing you've been hellbent on achieving from the word go - ie. being clearly seen by all Scots as the person who has denied them the full range of choices on their own constitutional future. Masterfully done, as ever. Don't worry - I doubt if there's a single Devo Max supporter who will now feel driven to vote for independence as a result of your antics.
"Let's say it, we're better together and we'll rise together..."
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains.
You RAI-AISE me up, to walk on stormy seas...
