Will devo max be on the ballot or not?
Week one of the Scottish referendum skirmish has highlighted one big issue where Cameron and Salmond take a different view – should an option for so-called devo max be included on the ballot paper.
London wants it to be a straight YES/NO to independence while the SNP leader would like a third option – so called devo max. Clearly both sides sense that Scotland might not be ready for the full division even by 2014 but Number 10 doesn’t want Salmond to be given anything that he could present as a victory.
There are lots of tricky political and legal hurdles for both sides. The question is who is going to win. What will be on the ballot?
