Scotland’s First Minister, SNP leader Alex Salmond, has committed to publishing a White Paper proposing a referendum on Scottish independence.
The move has been dismissed by the Scottish Lib Dems leader, Nicol Stephen:
“Everyone knows the work on this White Paper is a waste of civil service time and the public’s money. There is nowhere near a majority for independence in the Scottish Parliament. Every minute spent on this document is a distraction from more important priorities, such as health, education and crime.”
(I would direct you to the Scottish Lib Dems news website, but it seems to have a few, er, technical issues at the moment.)
