Alex Salmond is saying to people that you can have independence and keep the pound and the Bank of England - we now know that is not going to happen. It would be bad for Scotland, it would place an unacceptable burden on the UK taxpayer, it would repeat the mistakes of the euro area, in fact, worse. Labour was right to keep the UK out of the Euro - we cannot stand back and pretend that it would be OK for an independent Scotland to join a currency union with the rest of the UK. Scotland will not keep the pound if Scotland chooses independence and it is dishonest of the SNP to pretend otherwise. The only way to keep the pound is to vote to stay in the UK with a strong devolved Scottish Parliament. More and more people are coming to see that as the best way forward for Scotland.
