Is this the true face of the Tories on Scottish independence?

Tomorrow the Sunday Times will carry another video from disgraced Tory ex-treasurer Peter Cruddas. Last week it was cash for access. This week it seems he’s talking down the Union. The Tories are defending the union? Well, with “help” like this…

“We, as a party, have to be seen to be fighting to keep the Union together. Even if we don’t agree with it, because at the end of it all, if the Scots say we’re out of here and they want to go independent, we can turn around and say it’s not what we wanted, it’s not what we campaigned for, you can’t have this, you can’t have that, and you can get on with it.”

The Conservative party have made no comment.
