From Martin Kettle at The Guardian

In England meanwhile such claims are even more fantastic. I keep reading about how English opinion won't put up with this or that. But the fact is that this is precisely what English opinion does. Even to talk about there being an English debate about separation is to exaggerate. In England any debate is confined to professional Anglo-Scots members of the political class, to constitutional reform obsessives and to mad people, mostly on the Daily Telegraph.

He's being overemphatic for comic effect, but not only did it make me laugh, I think it holds quite a large kernel of truth, at least at the moment.
