Cameron concedes to Salmond on first call!

The Independent on Sunday carries a detailed report on David Cameron's complete capitulation to the Scots during the very first post-election telephone conversation. The article may be read from here, and contains the startling fact that Vapid  has already conceded borrowing powers:

The Government has acceded to the Scottish National Party leader's demands for immediate authority to borrow at least £300m annually from the Treasury to help boost Scotland's economic recovery.

The game plan of the Scots is clear, the referendum will be deferred as long as politically feasible while ever more concessions are squeezd from the Westminster Government. The game plan of René Levesque in seeking independence for Quebec from Canada is worth studying in this respect.

In the present situation the crumbling EU and its power to meddle and menace will further complicate events. If England is to resist the political break-up of the island of Great Britain into a continental type land area, with three states sharing land borders, thus losing all the benefits which derive from being a united island power locked by the sea, together with the tresured links with the Commonwealth, then a quick collapse of the Coalition Government, a change of leader in the Conservative Party to one aware of the economic and sovereign dangers now faced (both from Scotland and from the Continent) is essential.

According to the Independent article linked above, the following are the steps (from the Constitution Unit, University College London) which will lead to Scotland's independence, but to succeed Salmond will be aware the process will need to be dragged out over many years, during which Britain will be deliberately and steadily bled to death.

The procedure: Five steps to independence
1. A Bill is passed by the Scottish Parliament authorising a referendum
2. The referendum asks the people of Scotland to approve the executive entering into negotiations with the British government over the future of the nation.
3. If the referendum is passed, the two administrations discuss terms of independence – covering issues including the division of assets and debt, the future of North Sea oil and Scotland's membership of international bodies.
4. Legislation for a second referendum, which, technically, can be authorised only by Westminster.
5. The final referendum asks the Scottish people if they want independence on the negotiated terms.
