Ian Davidson evidently too daft to know better than ask a question without anticipating the answer.

Independent Scotland a 'basket case' if it refuses share of UK debt

Independent Scotland a 'basket case' if it refuses share of UK debt | Unionist Shenanigans | Scoop.it
An independent Scotland would be regarded as a “basket case” on the world stage if Alex Salmond made good his threat not to accept a share of the UK’s national debt, Danny Alexander has warned.

The customary Simon Johnson spin was evident just from reading the headline. Those of us not blinded by British nationalist fanaticism know full well that it is not Scotland that is making the threats here. The Scottish government has always made it clear that it was expected that Scotland would take a proportionate share of UK debt on independence. It is the UK government which has called this into question by its antagonistic, almost belligerent, attitude to various aspects of the post-independence settlement.

Danny Alexander and George Osborne need to grow up and realise that they can't have it both ways. They cannot credibly claim that Scotland will be a successor state for the purposes of debt sharing but not for purposes such as continuing membership of the EU.

If the UK government continues to conduct itself in this aggressively uncooperative manner it's not difficult to see who will be regarded as the "basket case" by the rest of the world.
