The situation of financial crisis, coupled with a hugely unpopular Westminster government that has found itself entirely incapable of coming up with any solutions  beyond throwing more and more of our money at the banks, would seem a perfect opportunity for the SNP to make their mark and assert the need for an independent Scotland. With unemployment poised to reach two million and share prices continuing to fall at the SNP conference, Alex Salmond has been reduced to calling for the return of ‘Scotland’s money’ and blaming the collapse of Scottish banks on the Union. Supposedly independence will save us from such catastrophes in the future.
