The Scottish Question for Non-Dom Plebs


I think I've discovered what the question will be in the Scottish referendum. It's not quite on par with the intricacies of the Schleswig-Holstein question, or the confusion of the East Lothian question. It's: "Should Mars Bars be deep or shallow fried?"

Noticed a Daly Mail headline while delivering the papers this morning that criticised Bradley Wiggins for joining a tax avoidance scheme. That's a bit rich, of you'll pardon the pun, when the boss of Associated Newspapers, Viscount Rothermere, is a non-dom for tax purposes. Glass houses, and all that...

One also hears Cameron is prepared to hold a plebiscite on EU membership. Can't use the word 'plebiscite' now, surely?
