Anyway, I was going to give up, then I noticed this little beauty on the BBC site. It's referenced back to the Sunday Times (behind a pay wall).
Peter Cruddas secretly taped making Tory Union claims
Now I thought that there was going to be an unexciting story about trades unions, but I reckoned it was worth a read... However, it's not about trades unions at all. It's about THE Union.
The gist of the story is that, our friend Mr Cruddas (who is turning out to be almost as accident prone, and as much of a liability as Great Uncle Francis), has been caught on camera letting the cat out of the bag about how the party REALLY feels about the Union.
And it appears that all this garbage from Cameron (looking back on which you might have said was a little dramatic and over acted...not to mention full of factual holes), was just that. Garbage.
They don't want to save the union, without which they would have a natural majority in the UK, London parliament. Not a bit of it. They want an end to it. they want to lose Scotland. But they must appear to want to fight for it, with, what was it Camergoon said... "everything I've got".
Mind you, in fairness he did also say he would fight for benefit caps, the NHS, the jet contracts, the British corner in the EU and to let Turkey join the EU, 'with everything he had'...so I hope he's got an awful lot, because it's gotta go a long way.
Anyway, so far the Tories have refused to say anything about this. They are presumably looking for someone who can come up with some excuse for 'the Crude one', for the second time in a week, after all he can't resign again! (Boy, Rupert must really hate him!).
On the other hand Ms Sturgeon has said:
"This is another bombshell for the Scottish Tories who are isolated and irrelevant in the games being played by their London bosses.
"It shows that senior Tories in London are cynically faking their opposition to independence to position themselves for a post independence deal.
"The Cruddas revelations show that they believe in nothing except protecting Westminster interests.
"Their claims about winning the referendum are exposed as mere bravado. In fact they are already preparing for losing."
