Is MI5 planning dirty tricks to stop Scottish independence?

Is Margo MacDonald being paranoid – or just preparing excuses for the inevitable referendum defeat?
Peter A Bell's insight:

Crispin Black evidently doesn't do irony. The stuff about "significant trouble" at military bases and his fantasy post-No-vote scenario putting words into the mouths of independence campaigns reek of the kind of paranoia that it is impossible to imagine coming from the stolidly sensible Margo MacDonald.

Motes and beams, laddie! Motes and beams!

Top Secret

In yesterdays Sunday Herald, It reports of a letter sent by Margo MacDonald MSP to the Head of Mi5.


In her letter she asks for assurances that Mi5 will not interfere with the Scottish Independence referendum, and she asserts that there are of course Mi5 agents currently embedded and operating within the SNP.
How ludicrous a suggestion this is! may possibly be the disbelieving response of someone hearing this allegation, It sounds frankly unbelievable, but is it really so unbelievable?
