I'm indebted to Doug the Dog for drawing my attention to this video, and to the fact that there is a serious question here which Alistair Darling refused to answer. Where is the No Campaign (sorry "no" is negative, so they very cleverly called it Better Together...although as we are together at the moment, I'm not sure how it's going to get better if we stay together...more likely by far to get worse) getting it's money from?
The Yes Campaign got most of its money from a couple of multi-million pound lottery winners, and from the recently deceased Makar, although there have been many thousands of individual donations; the No campaign appears to have been funded largely by the Tories, but Alistair refused to answer the question and just said that they would comply with every law about declaring finances, later.
So it appears that the campaign is to be fronted by a Labour man (given the lack of popularity of the Tories, and more recently the Liberal Democrats in Scotland, either of them would do well to keep their heads well down...) and funded by a Tory donor. Clearly Alistair did not want to talk too much about this.
As far as the "ordinary" people that they "flooded the stage with" in comparison to the "celebrities" who joined the Yes campaign, I'm inclined to agree with them. I'm not that interested what "celebrities" think, specially ones who chose to live in the Bahamas and in California.
But Labour have been happy enough in the past to employ the services of "celebrities" including, if I recall rightly, Billy Connelly, as much a stranger to Scotland as Sean Connery any day, and the Tories, when they can find a celebrity that isn't ashamed to admit his/her Tory allegiance (given how many of his/her fans it might put off) are happy to be seen with the likes of Cilla Black and Gary Barlow, so there is an element of hypocrisy there.
I wonder if they simply couldn't find anyone prepared to get involved?
