On January 9 David Cameron told Sky News that the Scottish people deserve “a fair, clear and decisive question” on independence. On January 30, Ed Miliband told the Scottish Labour Party that a referendum should be “based on one fair question and one clear answer”. It is rather striking that the Prime Minister and the leader of the Opposition are using such similar language to set out an identical position on the issue of the forthcoming referendum. Both of them oppose further devolution. They use different kinds of mood music to justify their opposition, but they are both committed to the union in its existing form.
If Miliband is serious about reforming capitalism, his opposition makes no sense. I explain why over at Al Jazeera.
