Quotes

Sally Morgan told private school leaders: "Too often your world feels closed and the benefits of your educational insights are denied to others." Photograph: Richard Gardner/REX
"After a couple of days at the interviews, some jokes started to go round about the “two Northerners”, which was me and this guy from Birmingham. I was, like, “Mate, Birmingham’s not even in the North.” But I’m not sure they were too bothered about the geography.’"
...All that was permitted prior to then was to "open covering envelope 'B' and remove the postal voting statement and ballot paper envelope 'A', then check that the number on the postal voting statement in envelope 'B' matches the number on the ballot paper envelope 'A'" [see 'Stage 3', p.33, The Scottish Independence Referendum Guidance for Counting Officers ]
"In the old days Scottish opponents of English rule risked death in battle, their land lost and families destroyed as punishment for their challenge to southern power. Today's equivalent is maybe more arcane but deadly in a different way: impoverishment via a downgrading of the Barnett formula with (thrown in forfor good measure) destruction of the UKUK Labour Party through removal of their Scottish MPs from any say over English affairs. The Conservative government needs to be careful here: what looks good in the political equivalent of the Bullingdon Club may not play so well in the country at large.  The Irish rising of Easter 1916 was successfully put down, only to be reignited after the brutal decision to shoot its leaders. The modern equivalent might happen here.  Imagine a Salmond-Brown axis at the head of an SNP/Labour movement declaring the Scots to have been betrayed by the Downing Street elite."
