Independent gets vote at SNP conference

THE only newspaper of choice at the SNP conference this weekend?

The Independent, of course, which splashed on ‘ten reasons why Scotland has “better government” than England’, including a piece by arch-Unionist, Allan Massie, conceding ‘he was wrong and Alex Salmond is right’.

The only snag was the Indy’s circulation guys didn’t appear to send any extra copies to Aviemore where the conference was taking place, meaning delegates had to resort to reading photocopies of the story.
