It was his proposal to include school children.

Cameron just rolled over.

It sounds like he avoided the question to me.

Because NI and Eire are both in EU.

England and NI won't be after 2017.

Border control will be needed then for NI/Eire and England/Scotland.

This.

It is absolutely essential.

Armed guards rummage through shopping bags.

Ruck sacks and brief cases take longer.

Does that sound to you like a Scottish version of Farage?

Or Nick Griffin?

Or am I imagining it?

Tbh, it doesn't sound like a cross between the late Russell Johnston and Robert Maclennan.

But I thought much of the independence argument was based on the election of Thatcher?
