Reasons to vote no: junkie dogs

Wonder what the best reason for voting one way or the other in the referendum I hear will be. The one the guy beside me on the train gave a minute ago will take some beating. He's a no. Because we'd be left with all the junkies and Salmond is spending £2m (he was very specific) on dogs for all the junkies. I think he might be getting mixed up with dementia sufferers, but anyway.

"Res ipsa loquitor". I think. Maybe "Quod erat demonstrandum"

Alex Salmond (in a small part of a very reasoned speech) says that the broadcast media try to be fair but the press in Scotland is "heavily stacked against independence" (and, in other breaking news, bears, woods, Pope, Roman Catholic etc).

The Times reports this as Salmond "lashing out" in an "unprecedented attack on the press". It's all terrible, what with "
him and his plans for separation".
"Irony" isn't the right word but what ever it is, it's that.
