Scottish power cuts?

July 17, 2014

Christopher Beedham can find out what his vote for independence will deliver if he reads Scotland’s Future – Your Guide to an Independent Scotland, the nationalists’ vision for Scotland (“A vote to leave the market”, Letters, 3 July). There he will find the aspiration that arrangements to fund university research would remain the same as at present.

As to giving academics more power, Michael Russell’s interventionist and interfering micromanagement of the colleges in Scotland shows that we might expect the opposite.
