Is the UK Union safe?

The last few weeks have been nothing short of mind blowing with massive well known companies hitting the rocks, billion pound bailouts and probably more trouble further down the line. But what has this done to the Union? Has it strengthened the bond between England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales?

The truth is that aside from the SNP making noises in Scotland the Union was never really under threat and even the Scottish move is now under serious threat. The SNP has been forced to go cap in hand to the Treasury for further funding, which is likely to be rejected, at a time when it had been boasting it could 'look after itself'. The SNP end game of an independent Scotland is now in tatters as the economy has been shown to be too small to support itself in times of trouble.

The latest move to get the HBOS deal reviewed could well fall flat on its face and emphasise the fact that the Scottish government needs the full financial backing of the Union now more than ever before. The SNP has tried to hoodwink voters for some time with boasts of a strong Scottish economy when the price of oil was $150 a barrel, but where are those claims now?
