BrightGreenScotland have pointed to some interesting aspects of Camerons posturings on a vote for an independent Scotland. While he claims to support the Union his actions help the cause for an independent Scotland.
So Who benefits from Scotish Independence? Cameron loses only one MP, the LD a handful but for Labour 41 of the 59 seats its a disaster they may never recover from. Cameron has some form, saying one thing and doing another. Claiming to be the greenest government ever to gain green votes while not reducing emissions. In this and many things he has followed the lead of Tony Blair.
Last month he delighted eurosceptics, "standing up for Britain" while actually promoting the cause of his wealthy city friends and reducing our standing in Europe.
"The employment of cunning and duplicity in statecraft or in general conduct", named after the Italian Renaissance diplomat and writer Niccolò Machiavelli, who wrote Il Principe (The Prince).
Perphaps Cameron merely stumbles into these things but its possible has something of the Mandleson about him.
