Darling must stop efforts to bully Commission

Efforts by Alistair Darling to influence the deliberations of the Electoral Commission on Scotland’s referendum question have been branded as “utterly shameless”.
The senior Labour politician has been quoted as describing the question as “skewed” and “another attempt to rig the question” in a broadside that is clearly intended to influence the Electoral Commission’s process.
A substantial majority of the 26,000 respondents to the consultation on the referendum found that the Scottish Government’s proposed wording was clear and understandable.
