How Embarrassing

The party leaders are in a cleft stick. If they do nothing in response to the latest polls they'll be called complacent and if they all hare off to Scotland (which is what they've chosen to do) they'll be accused of panicking.

Mind you, both accusations would be just. So serve them right.

Up until a few days ago no-one in the British political establishment was taking the referendum seriously. According to reports in this morning's papers the Civil Service has no contingency plans for dealing with the many administrative issues that will arise if Scotland goes it alone. The civil servants say their politicial bosses told them not to bother.
